The 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…
I really enjoyed The School of Good and Evil series. I remeber reading the first three books and fallen in love. Since the Netflix movie coming out soon, might as reread the books abd finish the series. This book is perfect for any age. Yes I did love the covers to each one.
Agatha is my favorite character in the book. She don’t look like a normal princess, but she is one on the inside. Agatha enjoys her life with her mom and cat. She likes Sophie company at times, since she is her only friend. When they get whisk away to school of good and evil, it up to Agatha to bring them home.
Sophie looks like a fairytale princess, and wants a new life. She gets wish and end up in The School of Good anf Evil. Somehow ended up in the school for evil. Sophie knows she Good and willing to do anything to switch with her best friend.
I’m excited to dive again in this world and read the new book which came out. The Rise of School Evil is a prequel. The books are long and a very detailed world building for adult and middle grades. So enjoy!!!
