At the School for Good and Evil, failing your fairy tale is not an option.
With her glass slippers and devotion to good deeds, Sophie knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good, while 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, while Agatha finds herself in the School for Good. But what if the mistake is the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are…?
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.

“It is not often that someone comes along who can reinvent fairy tales and reclaim their magic. Soman Chainani takes the racing energy of Roald Dahl’s language and combines it with the existential intensity of J.K. Rowling’s plots to create his own universe. The School for Good and Evil uses the sorcery of words and the poetry of friendship to startle, enchant, and keep us turning its pages.”
