9780062104892: The School for Good and Evil

The New York Times bestselling 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. Start here to follow Sophie, Agatha, and everyone at school from the beginning!

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?

Review:

Invention in overdrive...The School for Good and Evil is a comedic education by a writer primed to shoot to the head of the class.--Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and Matchless

"Rich and strange."--Kirkus Reviews

"A fairy tale like no other, complete with romance, magic, humor, and a riddle that will keep you turning pages until the end."--Ann M. Martin, author of the bestselling Babysitter's Club series

"Chainani has imagined the world where fairy tales come to life, where for every fairy princess with a 'Happily Ever After' in her future there is a villain with a tragic fate in store. But in The School for Good and Evil it's not always certain which is which."--David Magee, screenwriter of Life of Pi and Finding Neverland

"In Chainani's richly imagined world the action never lets up for a nano-second. Young readers won't be able to stop turning the pages till they reach the surprising and satisfying conclusion."--Tor Seidler, author of Mean Margaret, a National Book Award Finalist

"Chainani takes the racing energy of Roald Dahl's language and combines it with the existential intensity of J.K. Rowling's plots to create his own universe. THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL uses the sorcery of words and the poetry of friendship to startle, enchant, and keep us turning pages."--Maria Tatar, Chair of Folklore and Mythology Program, Harvard University and Editor of The Classic Fairy Tales

"Wow. From the very first sentence, you know you're entering a thrilling world of strange fantasy... A wild and dangerous fairy tale ride. I loved this book."--R. L. Stine, author of the bestselling Goosebumps series

"[A] whip-smart debut...If I could bewitch you all to read it, I would. Grade: A."--Entertainment Weekly

From the Back Cover:

This year best friends Sophie and Agatha will discover what it is to be a student at the fabled School for Good and Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy-tale heroes and villains. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, Sophie knows she'll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her shape-less black frocks, wicked pet cat, and dislike of nearly everyone, seems a natural fit for the School for Evil.

But when the two girls are swept into the Endless Woods, they 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, among handsome princes and fair maidens 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.
