"I'm experiencing some teenage angst. I need to like, go write in my diary or something." ~ Sophia Mercer
“Hey,you might be able to take away my magical powers, but the power of sarcasm was still at my disposal.”
― Rachel Hawkins
“The "Holy-crap-that's-a-lot-of-pink" Zone would have been a more accurate description.
I don't know what I was expecting a vampire's room to look like. Maybe lots of black, a bunch of books by Camus...oh, and a sensitive portrait of the only human the vamp had ever loved, who had no doubt died of something beautiful and tragic, thus dooming the vamp to an eternity of moping and sighing romantically.
What can I say? I read a lot of books.
But this room looked like it had been decorated by the unholy lovechild of Barbie and Strawberry Shortcake.”
― Rachel Hawkins, Hex Hall
“He raised an eyebrow, which made me totally jealous. I've never been able to do that. I always just end up raising both of them and looking surprised or scared instead of sardonic.”
― Rachel Hawkins, Hex Hall
I couldn't bring myself to say "Archer" out loud. I'd have felt like I was in an episode of Masterpiece Theatre: "Archer! Let us fetch a spot of tea, old boy!"
SummaryAdd a 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. (From Goodreads)
After totally blowing a prom night spell, Sophie is required to attend a reformation school for faeries, witches, etc. She then falls in love with a handsome warlock, has 3 of the most popular, prettiest girls as her enemies, and a vampire as her roommate/best friend. Sophie later discovers that her dad is the head of the Council who sent her to Hex hall, and that an organization called The Eye wants to destroy Hex hall and especially, her. How will things turn out?

Sophie has tried one too many times to help the hapless teens in her school and is now required to attend a reformation school for the paranormally inclined. Her bum luck? Granted a vampire roommate who may be linked to the death of her last roommate. She falls in love / hate with the school's resident hottie, comes afoul of the wanna-be dark witch coven and learns far more about herself than she ever wanted to.
