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 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.

I've always wanted to be a witch, ever since I was a little girl. I remember Dressing up every year for Halloween as a witch and even watching T.v shows with witches as main characters. This is probably the reason I loved this book so much. It was fast paced and an easy read.

This book was hilarious. Sophie Mercer is witty and funny. Almost everything she said made me laugh out loud. Not only was this a book hysterical, but it was full of suspense and had a surprising twist.

There is a cliff hanger at the end *sigh* but at least I can read the second one without waiting.  Now if your looking for something easy and fun to read. Get yourself a copy of Hex hall. :)
