Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Author: Rachel Hawkins
Format: Paperback
Pages: 323
Date Published: March 2 2010
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH

        Sophie discovered her powers three years ago. Ever since then, she's been struggling with them. Being a witch isn't easy. After doing a love-spell at her prom, she is exiled to Hecate; a reform school. Otherwise known as  The Hex Hall. The Hex Hall is on an isolated island and houses anything from withes and warlocks to shape-shifters and faeries. As if starting off at a new school with mythological creatures wasn't bad enough. Sophie already has three super powerful and beautiful enemies, a killer crush on the cutest boy in school, a mysterious ghost, and made friends with the only vampire in school. So to sum it up, she isn't doing very well. When people around The Hex Hall start dying in suspicious ways Sophie discovers some terrible things woven into her father's side of the family, and that terrible thing just so happened to reach all the way down the family tree until it got to her.

        I like the cover, aside from the ugly face that the model for Sophie is making.

Sophie & Archer
       Sophie and Archer almost sort of like each other. During the book, they start making out in a cellar and while they are doing that, Sophie thinks something along the lines of:
       "I really don't want my first time to be in a cellar
       "Actually, never mind. A cellar is fine."


       That escalated way too quickly. Cool down.

       I liked Archer well enough. He was funny and was always cracking jokes with Sophie. I also happen to really like his name.

      This book was very fast-paced, maybe a little to faced-paced. Only dwelling on things for a very short time. Even the big huge plot twists. Oh yeah, and about the twist where you find out how some of the people around campus are dying. I CALLED IT.
