Hex Hall is a quick, fun read where a young witch learns about not only her powers, but also all the other supernatural creatures that populate her world. The writing is snarky and humorous, and the heroine is a take-charge kind of girl.

Synopsis

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.

In spite of some clichéd, Dan Brown–influenced business with the top-secret Prodigium hunters L’Occhio di Dio, the snappy one-liners, loyal friendships and burgeoning romance will delight fans of Rosemary Clement-Moore’s Maggie Quinn series.

...the story is well paced and plotted with tween-friendly humor and well-developed characters, particularly awkward but compassionate Sophie. The ending satisfies while paving the way for future books.
