Hey folks,


I’m finally done with travelling and I’m wiped. This month has been so intense — more than 50,000 kids, 3 different festivals, and hanging out with so many brilliant YA author friends. All that is a prelude to say there’ll be no blog this week, because I need to get back to writing, but JoAnn will have a full YallWest-themed Ever Never TV episode up this Thursday to let you know what...

“She had always found villains more exciting than heroes. They had ambition, passion. They made the stories happen. Villains didn't fear death. No, they wrapped themselves in death like suits of armor! As she inhaled the school's graveyard smell, Agatha felt her blood rush. For like all villains, death didn't scare her. It made her feel alive.”
Soman Chainani, The School for Good and Evil

“In the forest of primeval
A school for Good and Evil
Twin towers like two heads
One for the pure
And one for the wicked
Try to escape you'll always fail,
The only way out is
Through a fairytale.”
Soman Chainani, The School for Good and Evil

“What's the one thing Evil can never have...and the one thing Good can never do without?”
Soman Chainani, The School for Good and Evil
