Meet Sophie!

Well, folks, as of today, we are officially 8 weeks away from the release of HEX HALL! I'm so excited that I cannot even handle it! In celebration of this, I thought it might be kind of fun to have a weekly feature "interviewing" some of the characters from the book. And where better to start than with the leading lady herself? (Ed. note: It's notoriously hard to get pictures of Prodigium, especially those living at Hecate Hall. Where possible, I've been able to use artist renderings, but in some cases, I'll have to use pictures of actors/models that come closest to matching the physical descriptions of the subjects.)

Now, let's meet Sophie!

Name: Sophia Alice Mercer (but I go by Sophie. Living in the South means that people tend to pronounce Sophia as "Soo-fee-yuh." No thanks.)

Hair color: Brown

Eye color: Blue

Age: 16

Favorite color: Anything but pink. Trust me, if you saw my dorm room, you'd understand.

Species: Okay, first of all, seriously? Species? That's the best word you could come up with? Ugh. I'm guessing you mean what kind of Prodigium I am. Witch.

Relationship Status: Ugh times two. "It's complicated" doesn't even begin to cover it, so for now let's just say "Single." Or maybe "Planning to Become a Nun."

What Do You Look For In a Friend?: Loyalty, a sense of humor, and unquenchable bloodlust. What can I say, having a vampire for a BFF has changed my priorities a little.

What Do You Look For In a Guy?: Snarkiness, intelligence, not having a girlfriend who may be in league with Satan, dark eyes, a killer smile- um, wait, can we scratch those last three things? Seriously, DON'T PRINT THAT. (Ed. note- Sorry, Soph!)

Who Is Your Hero?: My mom, without a doubt. And maybe Mrs. Casnoff, the headmistress here at Hecate Hall. Her hairdo alone demands hero worship.

What 3 Things Would You Take to A Deserted Island?: My boxed set of Anne of Green Gables books, an iPod (oh, technology, how I miss thee! No cells phones, mp3 players, computers, or Anything Else That Is Awesome here at Hex Hall. Blah.), and a broom for easy travel around the island. Yes, sometimes I ride a broom. Deal.

Lastly, do you have a motto?: Um...Life's a Witch, and then You Fly? Get it? It's like when people say...yeah, don't print that either, okay? I swear to God, my lameness can probably be seen from space. Stupid survey.

Thanks, Sophie! Those were some, uh, interesting answers! In addition to the interviews, I'll be posting little snippets of HEX HALL that best show off the "interviewees." That's obviously kind of tough for Sophie, what with the whole book being told from her POV and all, but here's a scene that I think captures her general "Sophie-ness!"

I stepped out of the car and into the hot thick heat of August in Georgia.
“Awesome,” I murmured, sliding my sunglasses on top of my head. Thanks to the humidity, my hair felt like it had tripled in size. I could feel it trying to devour my sunglasses like some sort of carnivorous jungle plant. “I always wondered what it would be like to live in somebody’s mouth.”

In front of me loomed Hecate Hall, which, according to the brochure clutched in my sweaty hand, was “the premier reformatory institution for Prodigium adolescents.”


Just a fancy Latin word for monsters. And that’s what everyone at Hecate was.

That’s what I was.

Up next Tuesday: Sophie's roommate and BFF, Jenna Talbot!
