In the New York Times bestselling sequel to Soman Chainani's debut, The School for Good and Evil, Sophie and Agatha are back in Gavaldon, living out their Happily Ever After, but life isn't quite the fairy tale they expected.

Witches and princesses reside at the School for Girls, where they've been inspired to live a life without princes, while Tedros and the boys are camping in Evil's old towers. A war is brewing between the schools, but can Agatha and Sophie restore the peace? Can Sophie stay good with Tedros on the hunt? And whose heart does Agatha's belong to—her best friend or her prince?

Soman Chainani has created a spectacular world that Newbery Medal-winning author Ann M. Martin calls "a fairy tale like no other, complete with romance, magic, humor, and a riddle that will keep you turning pages until the end."

    I loved this book very much. Sophie and Agatha are back and they are fighting over a prince! They just want life to go back to normal but that isn't going to happen at the school for good and evil.

      This book.... I on't know what to say. It is the sequel to the School for Good and Evil and has even more drama, and I didn't even think that was possible.

        After the events of book one Sophie and Agatha are back home, but, unfortunately, life isn't exactly happily ever after. When Sophie and Agatha find themselves thrown back into the world of fairy tales, the world has flipped since they left. Instead of the School for Good and the School for Evil now there are the Schools Girls and the School for Boys. Suddenly life is a lot different, as all over the world girls are realizing they don't need their prince charmings and are booting them from their stories. And the entire tense situation is about to explode. Will Agatha be reunited with her true love, Tedros? Will Sophie be able to suppress her villainous ways? Will the fairy-tales return to their origins, or will life be forever topsy turvy? I loved this book! The character development was amazing, just as great as it was in the first book! I am really excited to read the third book in the series! I recommend this book to those who enjoy fairytales and fantasy books. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
