Every four years, two children of Gavaldon are ”selected” (kidnapped is more accurate) for The School for Good and Evil. With her greasy black hair and a habit of carrying headless birds in her pockets, Agatha’s the perfect fit for Evil. Pretty-in-pink Sophie, on the other hand, would be right at home among the fairy godmothers and cucumber face masks of Good. So why is Sophie in Henchmen Training while Agatha’s learning Beautification? The answer isn’t so simple in Soman Chainani’s whip-smart debut, guaranteed to make any little girl think twice about wanting to be a princess. If I could bewitch you all to read it, I would. Guess that makes me Evil. A
