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 reversedโ€”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?

        It is such a good book. It is about two best friends Sophie and Agatha. Sophie is desperately trying to get kidnapped by the school master and get taken to the school for good to become a princess when she graduates. Agatha on the other hand does not want her or Sophie to get kidnapped as she has no other friends. When both of them get kidnapped by the school master things don't go exactly as planned.

                    I found the first book of the series a while back, and I loved the series, recently, (2020) the final book came out, ending the saga, if I told you anymore, it would spoil how good it is.

                      The book essentially taught me that evil is not all bad and good is not all good. The main characters are both "readers " and have found themselves in a place of magic. Their world back home did not have magic, though they have heard if it in their storybooks.
