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.

I have this book on my TBR pile for a long time and after hearing so much good thing about it was time to give this series a change and start with Sophie and her adventures in this school for gifted children.
I loved two things about this first book on the series: 1 – Sophie knows nothing about how to control her powers and she still tries to help people all around her; 2 – Her roommate and best friend is a vampire with a love for everything pink.
But the best of this book was the adventure and Sophie trying to understand her powers and everything that was happening at Hex Hall. It’s really interesting when she discover her father is the head of the council and a very important wizard responsible to send everyone to Hex Hall.
I found it weird the appearance of a ghost to her, but everything it’s strange in this school, but this strange even for this school. I liked Sophie ad the way she was always looking for the true. She’s a very determined girl and it made things more fun. Her mother kept many secret and I thought some of them were really important to share, but it made things more mysterious in the hunt.
