The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani


In Sophie and Agatha’s land, there is a legend that says two children will be kidnapped on one night of the year. One child will be sent to the school for good; one to the school for evil. In the school for good, the child will learn how to be a prince or princess, while, in evil school, the child learns how to be a villain. Sophie is sure that she will be taken to the school for good, and has spent all her life preparing to be a princess. Everyone thinks Agatha, the town outcast, must surely be chosen for evil. But when the mysterious Schoolmaster comes to collect the children, a horrible mistake occurs. Sophie is dropped into the school for evil, while Agatha lands in the school for good. Somehow the girls must survive their schools and find a way to correct the mistake before they are stuck forever.

This is definitely the best book I’ve read in a while! It’s so creative! Think Harry Potter, but with fairy tales. I loved the creativity and world-building in both schools, and all of the characters are fun to read. I definitely wish I could go to one of these schools. If you love fairy tales, you may like this book. It was really cool to see the children of famous fairy tale characters go to school to get learn how to be a prince/princess/villain. I recommend this series if you’re a fan of fantasy, fairy tales, or good books.

Rating: 4.5/5
