Sophie Mercer is a witch - a dark witch- who doesn't know the extent of her powers. She has lived in nineteen states in her 16 years. Because of a spell-gone-wrong, she must attend Hex Hall, a school for witchers, warlocks, fairies, and vampires.
The characters in this book are realistically depicted and have the same kinds of problems ordinary teenagers have - with the big exception of their extra-ordinary powers.
This is a fun read that has everything - interesting characters, a murder mystery to solve, and some very humorous parts!
