Book 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.

Shannon's Thoughts:
I don't know why I put off reading this book as long as I did.  I've seen it around and have seen all the good reviewsI guess something about the description made me hesitant. But I'm so glad I did because Hex Hall was fun, fun, fun!  This book is the perfect blend of witty, quick pacing and a fun plot.  Sophie has some of the best inner dialogue I've read and she is so just so funny and sassy.  I honestly found myself laughing out loud at parts.  I especially enjoyed her opinions on her classmates and her interactions with her roommate and her crush.  Some of the plot twists are a little predictable, but others I was really surprised by.  And I definitely don't think we've heard the end of some of the characters or situations.  I can't wait to see what happens in the next two books, Demonglass and Spellbound.  If you're like me and trying to decide if you want to read these books or not, take the plunge!  You'll be happy you did!
