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?

      This is an absolutely amazing book, and will always surprise you. It's about two 16-year-old girls One is good and one is bad. Sophie, a perfect girl, a reader and a dreamer. And there's Agatha, rebelious and also a reader, but she never will dream about finding a true love. Sophie has always hoped she will go to the School for Good, but Agatha has only ever thought once about going to the School for Evil, and her 'mother' Callis, has been preparing her. But when they get to the school, Sophie is thrown into the School for Evil and Agatha is thrown into the School or Good. They think it's a mistake. And Sophie is hell-bent on proving it's a mistake. As it follows their time in the school, Agatha finds her power to grant wishes and Sophie, the power to turn into a powerful withery hag. I won't say anything else, you can find out by reading the book, and I highly reccomend this for all ages and hope you will consider my request.

        It is a very good book that shares the differences between good and evil and how easily you can get them confused.

            This book was to me one of the best books next to the Land of Stories and Harry Potter! At first, I thought that why had Sophie been dropped into Evil and Agatha dropped in Good? Though later in the book I knew that Sophie belonged in Evil, Because Agatha was always being nice to her and Sophie wasn't treating Agatha as her real friend. I overall this book was fantastic in my opinion.

                I really loved this book. It is about two girls who are unlikely friends. One is Good and one is Evil or at least that is what they thought, because it turns out to be the other way around.

                  The School for Good and Evil is a pretty good book. It’s about Sophie and Agatha, who go off into the forest to find that Agatha, who likes things grim and gloomy, is in the School of Good, and Sophie, who is beautiful and longed for this moment forever, is in the School of Evil. The two know they aren’t in the right schools, just look at them compared to their classmates. But when they try to switch lives, or like Agatha wants, to leave and go home, they find out they can’t. Through an adventure, Agatha and Sophie find who they really are, deep down in their souls. This book is action-packed, with so much detail in it. I reccommend The School for Good and Evil to people who like adventure and surprises! :)

                      The School for Good and Evil was an absolute favorite for me. No wonder it is a New York Times best seller! It is a story of action, friendship and romance. The character's emotions jump out of the page and makes them relatable. You have go tot read this book.
