Staff Reviews

Unlikely best friends Sophie and Agatha have the bonds of their friendship pushed to the limit when they are kidnapped and enrolled into the School for Good Evil. There's just one problem- Sophie is positive she's been sorted into the wrong school. Oh, and the girls may just be arch-enemies set to destroy one another in their own fairytale! The most honorable thing about Chainani's work in this series is the care he takes to explore all the nuances, difficulties, and joys possible in every kind of female friendship. That's something that young girls desperately need to read. It's clearly a priority for him, which makes him a priority for me!

The New York Times bestselling School for Good and Evil series is an epic journey into a dazzling new world, where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.

Start here to follow Sophie, Agatha, and everyone at school from the beginning 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.

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?
