The School for Good and Evil, by Soman Chainani

The School for Good and EvilSummary: At the School for Good and Evil, failing your fairy tale is not an option.  Sophie and Agatha 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 epic journey into a dazzling new world, where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.

  1. The plot of this book was very interesting. Agatha is convinced that the School for Good and Evil is not real, while Sophie cannot wait to be kidnapped because she is certain that she will be a princess at the School for Good. The book was occasionally hard to follow (the scenes alternated between Good and Evil), but I enjoyed this book.

  2. This book had a really, really interesting, unique and complicated plot.
    I think the author did a good job of explaining the it and making it easy to understand however sometimes the plot seemed unclear or switched around. At the beginning, the question kind of is: Was there a mistake? That part is clear but as the story progresses a lot of stuff happens that complicates the story. It is kind of hard to explain, but I think basically the problem with this book was the plot was unclear. It was one thing at the beginning, and then another at the middle and then at the end it turned out to be none of the above and just ends with both girls vanishing in a mist.
    I really, really liked this book and think that the plot was a great idea, but it is not my Newbery.
