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 such an amazing book! The story about two girls who've got switched up somehow and how a handsome boy named Tedros gets in the way. It's a beautiful story and I can't wait for the sixth book to come out. I'm not supposed to put links to other websites but anyone who loves this series can search up this and will find a website for this series. Sophie is a powerful girl and lets people know it, she wears whatever she wants and goes after Tedros even though she is a never. The coven: Hester, Anadil, and Dot, are Sophie's roomates and they eventually become frenemies and teach Sophie they're ways while Agatha has to deal with pink dresses, candy, and annoyingly handsome boys. The Storian decides to start their story and the story doesn't stop. Tedros thinks he's choosing Sophie, but really he's choosing poor Agatha. This is a page-turning book full of surprises and a series full of plot twists.

                  I think I'll be okay I don't know if it's for (PG),so I don't have to be surprised that I get too upset.

                    I read this book and the rest of the serie. And it's my favourite series of books. The storie is so twisted you can never know what will happen next. And one of the many things I love about it is how I feel so connected to the personages. People like Sophie who seem to have it all can relate because they get how tiring it can be to keep up appearances and people like Agatha who are more of an outsider get to feel what it feels like to be an insider. But the thing i love most about the serie is the ending. The way the author can make it seem like a happy and unhappy one with only one ending to work with. I strongly recommend everyone to read this book.
