Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth. Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers. But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

Another thrilling installment in this perfect series. Hex Hall was one of my favorite books of 2010, and I’m pretty positive that Demonglass is going to be one of my favorite books of 2011. Sophie was once again, a character I loved to read about. There were a few times I wanted to hop into Demonglass and slap her, because she was being so stupid and clueless.
One of the main things I loved about Demon glass (and Hex Hall) is the humor that Rachel Hawkins adds to her writing. There are very few YA books that can make me laugh, but this series never fails to do so. Rachel Hawkins is a thrilling and comedic writer that I love and I really hope you love too. I recommend Hex Hall and Demonglass to lovers of YA fiction, amazing writing, and an addictive plot.
