C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8237 comments The first kidnappings happened two hundred years before. Some years it was two boys taken, some years two girls, sometimes one of each. But if at first the choices seemed random, soon the pattern became clear. One was always beautiful and good, the child every parent wanted as their own. The other was homely and odd, an outcast from birth. An opposing pair, plucked from youth and spirited away.

This year, best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where all the lost children go: the fabled School for Good & Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. As the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon, Sophie has dreamed of being kidnapped into an enchanted world her whole life. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, she knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile Agatha, with her shapeless 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, thrust amongst 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…?

The School for Good & Evil is an epic journey into a dazzling new world, where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.

Really enjoying this.


Kaylin (The Re-Read Queen) (kaylin_14) Just finished chapter two. :) I never read middle grade, so I think I was expecting this to be a little more child-like. I've been pleasantly surprised so far!

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8237 comments Glad to hear that! Yeah, most middle grade isn't too child like. Just simpler sentence structure, and not as hard hitting on certain topics for the most part.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8237 comments I finished this a couple of days ago and really enjoyed it. It was the same and different from what I expected at the same time. I'm looking forward to reading the second book soon.
