"Do you remember the ol' TV Show Sabrina the Teenage Witch?"

“My Mother says I must not pass too near to the glass; she is afraid that I will see A little witch that looks like me; With a red mouth to whisper low , The very thing I should not know” – Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt.

For Sophie Mercer ,being a witch isn't all fun and games . She doesn't get to ride a broomstick or have a talking cat like Sabrina and unfortunatley for Sophie her spells tend to get her into a huge bunch of trouble from students breaking their bones to trying to get out of a test which left her teacher with memory-loss . The spells also have a habit of getting her kicked out of schools . The book starts off at her 19th and counting school on their Senior Prom Night. Sophie hears sobbing , uncontrollable sobbing and discovers Felicia – eager to help , she conjours up a date spell which like all her previous spells turns out terribly wrong. Summoned to the council -the big-wigs of the witch/warlock world .Sophie is sentenced to schooling at Hectare Hall aka Hex Hall (the school reminded me of the English TV Show ""Hex"). The Brochure reads “The purpose of Hectare Hall is to protect and instruct shapeshifter, witch and fae children who have risked exposure of their abilities, and therefore imperiled Prodigium society as a whole”. Hex Hall is like Hogwarts for the supernatural as Sophie is landed in class with fae , shapeshifters , the odd vampire, witches and warlocks. This book has clever literature references including the famous Lord Byron as a Vampire ( read Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford) teaching English and of course suited to all teens relating to your everyday school situations. As the book progresses , we read as Sophie finds herself and the Progidium in danger as a secret society has come out of the woodwork to destroy all supernaturals especially her .

Description

In the wake of a love spell gone horribly wrong, Sophie Mercer, a sixteen-year-old witch, is shipped off to Hecate Hall, a boarding school for witches, shapeshifters and faeries. The traumas of mortal high school are nothing compared to the goings on at "Freak High." It's bad enough that she has to deal with a trio of mean girls led by the glamorous Elodie, but it's even worse when she begins to fall for Elodie's gorgeous boyfriend, Archer Cross, and frankly terrifying that the trio are an extremely powerful coven of dark witches. But when Sophie begins to learn the disturbing truth about her father, she is forced to face demons both metaphorical and real, and come to terms with her own growing power as a witch.

Author Biography

Rachel Hawkins is a 20-something former teacher who left teaching to take a chance and get serious about finishing that book she'd always wanted to write. Her first book, Hex Hall, was the result of that leap of faith. She's a graduate of Auburn University in Alabama and lives with her husband and three-year-old son.
