The School for Good and Evil

By: Soman Chainani

Sophie and Agatha are opposites.  Sophie wears pink, has a detailed beauty routine, and
dreams of princes.  Agatha wears black, likes to be alone, and has a creepy black cat.  Yet, when the two of them are kidnapped and dropped into the School of Good and Evil, Agatha is on the "Good" side, and Sophie is on the "Evil" side.  Both girls are sure there has been a mistake.  However, no one will believe them or help them!

Mrs. Senechal says:
This is one of the more creative fairy tales I've read in a long time.  I really liked the opposing sides of good vs. evil.  And, the author does a great job of showing that things are not always what they first appear.  The characters and events are fun, funny, and unexpected.  The ending is a huge cliffhanger for book two!
