    An okay read. Good book for teenagers!

    Spoiler: It starts out great, with a tough girl named Hex, who has a past. It goes down from there. I liked the concepts, the characters were okay, but a little flat. The plot had a lot of potential but fizzled. My biggest problem was Hex. She is supposed to be a tough girl & yet she continues to make silly mistakes. I am not sure if her family is sooo dangerous why she would even make friends with "normal" kids? It is also pretty short at 190pgs, so I felt that it became rushed towards the end & it left you with a cliffhanger.

    Great Read!

    This was a great book. I wish Hex had used her magic more, but it was still great. Maybe she'll use it more in the books to come. I liked it when she stood up to everyone causing her grief. I can't wait for the next book.

    Good book! worth the readI If a little tweeny, not horrible

    The story is interesting; enough that i want to read the next in the series. I only have 2 complaints, and they are minor. The first is the passage of time in the story. Often the book skips a few days and details that i think would be helpful in building character profiles. Related to that certain scenes could be added to draw the readers interest in the welfare of the side characters. For instance a complete date scene with Zach or a homework session with Sam that dwells on there personal characteristics. Scenes like this also help the flow of time seem more natural and concrete. Even with these faults, which can be improved upon in the second book, I say it is defiantly worth the read!
