Hex Hall, by Rachel Hawkins

16 year old Sophie Mercer, whose absentee father is a warlock, finds herself at Hecate (aka Hex) Hall, a boarding school for delinquent witches, warlocks, faeries, shape-shifters and the occasional vampire. Sophie is a multidimensional character - both likable and believably flawed. Fast-paced, cleverly written, with touches of wry humor, a sharp eye for teen dynamics (popular vs. misfit crowds), and an ending that leaves you hanging. Highly recommended. 2010
