The New York Times bestselling The School for Good and Evil, the first book in the series, is an epic journey into a dazzling new world, where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one. This paperback edition features an Extras section, giving readers a chance to see which school they'd be in and a Q&A with the author, Soman Chainani.
With her glass slippers and devotion to good
deeds, Sophie knows she'll earn top marks at the School for Good and
join the ranks of past students like Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Snow
White. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her shapeless black frocks and wicked
black cat, seems a natural fit for the villains in the School for Evil.
two girls soon find their fortunes reversed—Sophie's dumped in the
School for Evil to take Uglification, Death Curses, and Henchmen
Training, while Agatha finds herself in the School for Good, thrust
among handsome princes and fair maidens for classes in Princess
Etiquette and Animal Communication.
But what if the mistake is actually the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are? @goodreads
First let me say I LOVE the cover of this book! It is so awesome!
I thought the book was great!
and Agatha are friends, but they are both so different. Sophie is all
about being beautiful and Agatha could care less. Sophie wants nothing
more than to be kidnapped by the School Master and taken to the school
of Good and Evil, the good side of course. Agatha doesn't want anything
to do with it or for Sophie to be taken either.
When a shadow
pulls Sophie into the forest, Agatha is there holding on to her for dear
life trying to keep her from going. Well.... they both get taken to the
school but they are on the wrong sides. Sophie is supposed to be on the
good side and Agatha on the evil side... or are they?
so many cool things going on in this book. It is a new and fun take on
fairy tales and I love it. The way the author portrays the schools I
wouldn't want to go to either one! :)
Those children that fail
get turned into animals or other things and have to just live in the
woods forever!!!! I thought that was cool too. Well, not cool for the
kids, but I digress.
Through the whole book Agatha is trying to
get them back to their homes. Sophie just wants to get into the right
school. She wants her prince and nice pretty things.
I fell in
love with Agatha, here character is sweet and I never saw any evil in
her at all. She is someone I would want to have as a friend!
is fighting, killing, warts, creatures, magic and many more things in
this book. I look forward to the other two books in the trilogy! 4 Stars
