Hex Hall, by Rachel Hawkins (Hyperion, 2010)

When disgraced witch Sophie Mercer screws up once too often, she’s sent to Hecate Hall, a reform school for troublemaking witches, faeries, and shapeshifters. Even as she befriends her roommate, the lone vampire student, she runs afoul of a would be coven of ambitious witches, acquires a ghostly mentor, flirts with a handsome warlock, and struggles to master her abilities. Something deadly is lurking in the shadows, and Sophie may be the key to stopping it before the body count gets out of hand. With a solid story, believable characters, and a fast-paced plot, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read from a promising new author, and the start of a fun series.
