Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
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.
Hex Hall was right at the top of my to-read list this year, and now I know that it was definitely worth the wait. It is the first book of a new series by debut author Rachel Hawkins. It had me drawn in from the first word to the last word. Sophie's voice is so clear and funny that it's heart wrenching watching her perform all these spells with good intentions only to have them backfire on her, especially the love spell at the beginning for another girl to get her a date for the prom.
I thought I knew where the story was going, but the twists and turns that Hawkins throws in will keep any reader on the edge. Hex Hall is definitely worth the read, and Hawkins has set out an intriguing and original world.
Cover: The cover is intriguing. The reflection showing both of Sophie's worlds is the first thing that caught my eye and made me want to read the blurb to find out what it's about.
