Books | Juvenile Fiction / Fantasy & Magic
THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL is now a major motion picture from Netflix, starring Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Cate Blanchett, and many more! A dark and enchanting fantasy adventure for those who prefer fairytales with a twist. The first in the bestselling series. Every four years, two girls are kidnapped from the village of Gavaldon. Legend has it these lost children are sent to the School for Good and Evil, the fabled institution where they become fairytale heroes or villains. With her glass slippers and devotion to good deeds, Sophie knows she'll join the ranks of past students like Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Snow White at the School for Good. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her shapeless black dresses and wicked black cat, seems a natural fit for the villains in the School for Evil. But the two girls 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 book just went a little too slow for me. I was really looking forward to it bc of the movie. But half the book nothings really going on. Its like filler chapters in a way. I also didn’t really care for how good and evil was portrayed. I think I liked the movie better. But it was still a good book just not my favorite. It could be bc Im not the targeted audience for the book too."
"There are some really cliched and kinda cringy moments throughout the book but it’s honestly so good and keeps you on the edge of your seat and invested in the story "
"If I could pretend the first book was a standalone, I'd have no complaints. It ends with "true loves kiss" between two girls- making them vanish before everyone's eyes and sending them home. That made me think "HELL YEAH LGTBQ ENEMIES TO LOVERS TOOT TOOT!" Yeah no, think again. The second book quickly back tracks, they both get boy love interests, the only trans character (with literally no voice) dies a senseless death, constant queerbait-and-switch."
"This whole series is fitting for fantasy and magic lovers! Sophie and Agatha is the beat duo 🤩"
