The School for Good and Evil is a twisted fairy tale with fluctuating emotions. The two main characters, Sophie and Agatha, were swept away from their village. they find themselves in front of the School for Good and Evil. Sophie, the prissy princess girl, is to attend the School for Evil; Agatha, the grim witch girl, is forced to attend the School for Good. This book left me desiring for more. It had everything I loved in a book: fairy tales, gore, and mysteries waiting to be revealed. This is not your ordinary fairy tale book with happy endings.

The school for good and evil is a thrilling ride through society's favorite fairy tales, myths, and common assumption. I finished it all in one day, and i still can't believe how good it is. It's like your most precious daydream and your most fevered nightmare, all at once. YOU WILL NOT REGRET READING THIS BOOK. OR ITS TWO SEQUELS.

A debatable plot, but otherwise good book. Soman has completely twisted it around and made it interesting.

Sophie is a princess. She has long golden locks and perfect skin. All the result of two hours of vigorous extensive grooming and preening. And of course she does many good deeds like befriending the which who lives in the graveyard. She does all this so that she will go to the school for good, meet her prince, and have her very own fairytale. To her delight, almost as soon as she arrives, her fairytale begins.

But what if this isn't her fairytale?
What if Sophie isn't a princess after all?

"Fly, Sophie! You're free!" The chicken tried to fly, then realized it couldn't, and plummeted to its death. "For the first time, I feel sorry for an animal." Lady Lesso said. Another "15" spat in Sophie's face.

In the forest of Primeval
A school for good and evil
Two towers like twin heads
One for the pure
One for the wicked
Try to escape you'll always fail
The only way out
