Hex hall Rachel Hawkins

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 isoCheck Spellinglated 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 on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

My Opinion:

From the very start of this story I was totally in love with this story.. Sophia (Sophie) is incredibly funny and witty, and although her heart is always in the right place her magic doesn't always go to plan. My favorite line in the whole book is "bad dog" Even though Sophie has a struggle through out the book she does it in humor, I don't think I read a page without laughing! Rachel Hawkins's play on words is genius. The plot was great there are so many twists and turns that keep you guessing until the end.
Sophie's not sure who to trust, but despite rumors, she becomes fast friends with Jenna while crushing over the hottest boy in school - and gaining his girlfriend as an enemy.
When girls are attacked, everyone wants the truth. Did a coven of witches raise a demon? Are the vampires really responsible for these attacks? Jenna the vamp is automatically accused who is Sophie's only friend.. she starts to work hard to clear her name
I never saw the twist with Archer coming.. I REALLY DO HOLD OUT HOPE FOR ARCHER! I am a romantic :)

I cant wait for the next book!!
