    snazz: Paranormalcy is another YA paranormal series with a snarky and completely loveable main character as well as a swoon-worthy romance. Plus the plot is similar in that it deals with an organization controlling paranormals.

Badass witches rule! I want to be like Sophie! I want to have badass powers and be able to beat the bad guys. Oh, and Archer is really hot and you know...
This book for me is about self-discovery and evolution and I can relate myself a lot to it. ( )

This was a fast read, the first in a series I think. Witches, shapeshifters, faeries, vampires and demons all go to reform school...

This was such a fun read! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and the book delivers on everything it promises.

Sophie was a character that I truly treasured - vulnerable, scared and insecure yet always hiding behind flame-sharp sarcasm and wit, even in her dialogues with herself. There were many times while reading a book that I actually laughed out loud.

Sure, there is a kind of "plot-by-numbers" feel and you've probably read the same story a million different times (starting with Harry Potter), and the characters, while pretty much stock (your "cool-but-evil" trinity, your "hot, popular and hates you" crush, your "misfit BFF", even your "strong and sexy ranger-type") but the dialogue is fresh, the writing absolutely sparkles and exploring this well-known plot through the eyes and thoughts of the indomitable Sophie was a blast.

As far as escapism fiction goes it doesn't get much better than this!

Who would like this book: If you're looking for a quick, fun read that's exactly what you expect, only with more fun and theatrics, this is the book for you. If you're looking for something different from or more than the standard New Misfit at Supernatural School (tm) yarn, don't bother. ( )

Epigraph
My mother says I must not pass

Too near the glass;

She is afraid that I will see

A little witch that looks like me;

With a red mouth to whisper low,

The very thing I should not know.

Book description
When Sophie Mercer turned thirteen, she 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 Hecate Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward prodigium, a.k.a. witches, fae, 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, tag-along ghost; and a new roommate, who happens to be the most-hated person and only vampire on campus. Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her friend Jenna is the number one suspect. Meanwhile, Sophie has a more personal shock to grapple with. Not only is her father the head of the prodigium council, he's the most powerful warlock in the world, and Sophie is his heir. 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.
