The School for Good and Evil

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This year best friends Sophie and Agatha will discover what it is to be a student at the fabled School for Good and Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy-tale heroes and villains. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, Sophie knows she'll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her shape-less black frocks, wicked pet cat, and dislike of nearly everyone, seems a natural fit for the School for Evil.

But when the two girls are swept into the Endless Woods, they 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, among handsome princes and fair maidens in Princess Etiquette and Animal Communication. But what if the mistake is actually 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.

Review:

Invention in overdrive…The School for Good and Evil is a comedic education by a writer primed to shoot to the head of the class. Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and Matchless

Review:

“Rich and strange.” Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[A] whip-smart debut....If I could bewitch you all to read it, I would." Entertainment Weekly

About the Author

Soman Chainani believes in fairy tales even more than the children of Gavaldon do. While studying at Harvard, he practically created his own "fairy-tale" major and wrote his thesis on why evil women make such irresistible fairy-tale villains.

Soman is also an acclaimed screen-writer, a graduate of the MFA Film Program at Columbia University, and the recipient of the school's top prize, the FMI Fellowship. His films have played at more than 150 film festivals around the world, winning more than 30 jury and audience prizes, and his writing awards include honors from Big Bear Lake, New Draft, the CAPE Foundation, the Sun Valley Writers' Conference, and the coveted Shasha Grant, awarded by a jury of international film executives. 

When he's not telling stories or teaching in New York City, Soman is a die-hard tennis player who never lost a first-round match for ten years. Then he started writing The School for Good and Evil. Now he loses all the time.
