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.

The School for Good and Evil, is the first installment in the planned trilogy (there is however a fourth book being written) written by Soman Chainani. This book is by far one of the best books I have ever read, as it not only includes the mysterious and engaging connections to fairy tales, in a world where belief and imagination seem to coexist with the reality of life. It also outlines and contrasts against the popular idea of stereotypes and archetypes written in most fairy tales, with the idea of “what is good and evil”. With the idea that not everything is as it may seem, the two main characters, Sophie and Agatha, are left on a journey to self-discovery, through their undeniable friendship, fear and pain. Overall, this book includes a variety of relatable concepts and conflicts, along with humour, suspense and a delicate drop of trust and romance, that is surely enough to make the book a page-turner for sure.

This book is just great. It shows you that anything can be inside you, no matter how you seem.
