Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins...

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

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.

By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus.  Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all:  an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

My Review:

Oh my, this book was like driving through a tunnel, you don't see what's coming until you hit the end of it.  I loved this book once I had time to sit down and really get into it.  You start off thinking one thing about your favorite characters and then BAM that isn't true at all!  I love books like this.  I hate being able to guess what will happen and this book definitely kept me guessing.  I loved seeing how all the different types of creatures interacted and the mystery of what was going on.

If you are looking for a good YA book to read while at the beach or sitting pool side, this is definitely a good one.  I really can't wait to read the other books in the series now, but that will have to wait until all the books I have piled high to review are done.
