Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins Review

"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."
Sophie gets sent to Hectate "Hex" Hall as punishment for using her powers in the open. She meets some people who turn out to be friends and some who turn out to enemies. When weird things start happening, she has to figure out what's going on before something very bad happens.
The characters were pretty well developed in this book. Sophie was kind of annoying during the story. I really liked Jenna's character, she took being an out casted vampire very well. I even kind of felt sorry for Elodie, the mean girl; she had things happen that no one should have to go through.
I thought it was very well written, and the jokes in the book were also well written. The plot was very well executed. Also, I didn't feel disappointed at the end!
This is absolutely **** star book!
Demonglass will be released in March 2011
