I would give this book 3 for a review.
The New York Times bestselling 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. Start here to follow Sophie, Agatha, and everyone at school from the beginning!
With her glass slippers and devotion to good deeds, Sophie knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good and join the ranks of past students like Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Snow White. Meanwhile, 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 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?
I really enjoyed this book. It was a prefect fairytale story. I thought it was a tad on the longer side but that was not a bad thing. I really enjoyed both main characters and how the sides of good and evil and who is that and who is not changed throughout the novel. I loved the fairytale lore that was created for this story. It was a complicated story that lost me at points but i really liked the messages and the characters of this story.
