From Goodreads:

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.

Opinion:

I’m going to do this review quickly as I want to go read the next in the series. I loved this book and want more now. :)

Although, it is done a lot I like the setting of magical boarding schools. Magical beings in school together just equal drama and action. Then there is the bonus of not having the parents overlooking their every movement. Rachel Hawkins did this superbly.

I like Sophie. She’s witty, loyal, and is a great friend especially to Jenna. Jenna is a dynamic character with a great personality. She’s a lesbian vampire that is in love with the color pink.

Archer makes me sad. He seems like such a great guy and I’m kinda hoping he’ll be in the second.

Alice is simply the most creepy character from beginning to end. She seriously freaks the crap out of me.

The school seems so intimidating at first, but I found it truly lovely by the end. Furniture that shows itself by your comfort level. Drinks that can be made out of anything and taste anyway. There is some seriously fun magic going on here.

Now, I’m gonna go read the next in the series.
