Hex Hall (Book Review)

Title: Hex Hall
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Series: Hex Hall Book 1
Publisher: Hyperion Book
Source: Bought

Goodreads 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.
My Thoughts:
I loved this book. Sophie is one of my new favorite main characters ever.  The story is incredibly told and keeps you guessing right up until the very end. The characters are very real and believable. And I could go on and on about how much I loved this book, but all I really want to do is wait for my paycheck so that I can buy book 2!

Rating: 5/5
