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 tag-along 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.

"Archer is smart and funny in addition to being hot. Elodie [his girlfriend] is stupid and dull."
"I turned and saw Chaston, Anna and Elodie walking toward me. They looked amazing in the fugly gym uniforms. Shocker."
"Even her essay for Lord Byron's class was about the way physical beauty enhanced a witch's power, supposedly because it gave her easier access to humans. It was ridiculous."
Sophie is a teenage witch who struggles to keep her powers hidden, which makes her and her mother move alot. She has never met her father. The only thing she knows about him is that her powers came from his side of the family and that when her mother found out he was a Warlock, she dumped him and left without knowing that she was pregnant. When Sophie was born she thought it would be better if he wasn't involve in her life, so everything that Sophie knows about her powers are the things that her mom read about in houndreds of magic books and from discovering some thing by herself.
This did seem to work until one day she went to far and was forced to enroll into Hex Hall, an academy for supernatural missfits. There she finds her first best friend, 3 enemys and big crush on a guy she shouldn't crush on and all that on her first day there.
But when her best friend get's acused on the murder on her former roomate and other 2 attacks, Sophie tries to find out who was really behind them, while struggeling with her powers and discovering that she maybe plays a bigger part in all this then she realized.
In the end she has to ask herself, where come her powers from and why is her lif in danger? Who can she really trust when friends and foes look so much alike...
