Sorry if my review is a little late, my computer crashed and I had to get it fixed.
Summary: Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
When I first laid my eyes on Hex Hall, I didn't want anything to do with it. Partly because so far all the books I read that involved boarding schools led me down and they often disappointed my expectations. After completing Hex hall I would say that it was a completely different story compared to the other boarding school books I read. It was unique,refreshing, and I would say entertaining.
Sophie starts off trying to help someone with their problem and completely messing it all up causing her to go to Hex Hall. A school for troubled witches,faeries, and shapeshifters. There she meets enemies,friends, a hot guy, and basically lots of trouble. Sophie was definitely a charming and spunky character. I loved the way she handlesd the situations given to her even though sometimes it causes her big trouble. She is definitely the type of character who doesn't need prince charming to rescue her because she's no doubt a kick butt character.
Rachel Hawkins' was unique and very compelling. She hooked me from the first page and left me wanting for more. The way she wrote her characters made them shine and there was no dull moment. This fast pace book will certainly grab you and captivate you the way it did to me. If you like a delightful, laugh-out-loud,invigorating book with a hint of paranormal creatures. This is no doubt the book for you
