Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch...

Which is why she had been sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for troubled teens who aren't exactly human. However this wasn't the case. Well, she did need reform school, but she isn't exactly a witch. Now she knows the secret of her family and her ex-├╝ber-hot-crush, Archer Cross, works for The Eye (a group that is hell bent on destroying all Prodigium - fairies, witches, shapeshifter, etc.).

Now that she knows she is a demon, Sophie wants to go through the Removal. Her powers have the ability to destroy everything she loves, therefore she believes that she must go to London to remove her powers in order to keep those she loves safe.

When Sophie arrives, however, she discovers that she and her dad aren't the only ones of their kind - there are two others staying with them for the summer. This means that someone is raising demons in secret and for some plot that Sophie can't even begin to fathom. And among all of that, The Eye is creeping closer and they are using Archer Cross to do so. But it isn't like Sophie still has feelings for him, right?

This second book in the Hex Hall trilogy has twists and turns that readers won't believe. Sophie is still as spunky as ever and she is willing to fight - whether it be Archer or her father. Readers won't want to put the book down and the ending is sure to make them go out and buy the third book in an instant.
