The school of good and evil review
The School for Good and Evil by Soman ChainaniThe first kidnappings happened two hundred years before. Some years it was two boys taken, some years two girls, sometimes one of each. But if at first the choices seemed random, soon the pattern became clear. One was always beautiful and good, the child every parent wanted as their own. The other was homely and odd, an outcast from birth. An opposing pair, plucked from youth and spirited away.
This year, best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where all the lost children go: the fabled School for Good & Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. As the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon, Sophie has dreamed of being kidnapped into an enchanted world her whole life. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, she knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile Agatha, with her shapeless 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, thrust amongst 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 of Good and Evil by Soman Chainani - review
Two best friends, Agatha and Sophie, are taken away this year to the fabled School for Good and Evil , where normal children go to train to become the heroes and villains of fairy tales. Sophie, the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon, had always dreamed of being taken away to attend the School for Good. Agatha meanwhile, with her frocks and black cat seemed like the perfect fit for the School of Evil. Could this mistake be a clue to who the girls really are? The School for Good and Evil is the perfect twist of a fairy-tale and wonderful novel for anyone seeking adventure and surprise. It has many and exciting adventures and I would recommend it to middle schoolers.

Every year, two children are kidnapped to the School of Good and Evil. After a while, people saw them in the fairytales that would arrive mysteriously a little while after the two children had left. One good and one bad. Sophie lives in a boring village, and dreams of going to the school of good and evil, as she always reads the tales. She wears pink, has long blonde hair and is always doing good deeds. On the other hand, Agatha, Sophie's friend, wears hideous black dresses, hates company and lives in a grave yard.
