Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins is the first of four books and was published in 2010. The book begins with fifteen-year-old Sophie Mercer, a witch, being exiled to Hex Hall, a reform school for wayward witches, vampires, werewolves, faeries, shapeshifters, and other Prodigium.

I really liked the premise of this story. I found that Hawkins got the teen angst right, and the conversations were realistic. I found the story fun and the friendships good. 

I liked the magic and the consequences students faced. There was just the right amount of tension in the story. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.

Michelle and I went to a 50% off sale today and she got these books for our NICU babies. Thank you Michelle for helping our project. 

We found a lot of Spanish books today, and we will have delivered 400 books to two different hospital NICUs by the end of this month. 

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
