The School for Good and Evil is so 5 stars! I started the book not knowing it was for Middle School kids. But that doesn't take anything away from this 488 page book of Good vs. Evil!
In this wonderful world that Soman Chainani has created you find that all fairy tales are created in a school for both good and evil. The town beyond the woods is where all the books get read. I can't go into too much detail as I don't want to give anything away. This book was so good, it's just beyond words!
The School for Good and Evil goes back to the old fairy tales that we all grew up with. But it adds a twist that will make you read very fast and will make young readers want to read until the last page. Kids will hide under the covers with a flashlight to finish The School for Good and Evil.
This is a trilogy and I can't wait for next year to come so I can read what happens next for our friends of the good and evil school.
At the School for Good and Evil, failing your fairy tale is not an option.
Welcome to the School for Good and Evil, where best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
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.
The 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 . . . ?
The School for Good and Evil is an epic journey into a dazzling new world, where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.
