The School for Good and Evil Series

The School of Good and Evil is a collection of fantasy fairytale books written by Soman Chanani. The debut novel was published in 2013. The set up of the series is in the fictional area of endless woods. It is about the adventure of Sophie and Agatha at the school good and evil, a place where children are taught to be heroes and villains.

The School for Good and Evil

The School for Good and Evil is the first book in the series. The book is about two girls who find themselves at an unlikely friendship. Sophie is princess- like and dreams of marrying a prince and eternal beauty and Agatha who is hideous and feels insecure after being kidnapped to the school; she wants to go with her friend, Sophie. The two live in a world where fairytales occur and every year two children one kind and the other terrible are kidnapped never to return. Agatha has high self-esteem and wants a friend who will be there for her when in need. At some point she cares less about her cat, going home. Seeing her mother, and helping her only friend Sophie. When she finds a boy, she sees the likelihood of a happy life and throws everything out of the window.

Sophie is obsessed with ending up in a fairytale; she cares about her looks and doings and wants to be kidnapped and taken to the school. Agatha wants to become a witch, and most of the villagers avoid her and lives in a graveyard with her mother and her black cat. She likes wearing black and is dark and avoids mirrors. Agatha had never had a friend before Sophie, and when one night a shadow comes to pick her, Agatha tries her best to save her. They are both kidnapped, and Agatha is taken to the school of good where there are handsome princes and maidens while Sophie is brought to the school of the evil to take death curses and uglification. The school trains the kids to be heroes and villains in fairy tales. Agatha is not happy at the school, and all she wants is to save Sophie and go back home. Things are difficult than they appear and for each of them to survive in the school they have to do well, or else they will suffer.

Agatha while in school notices that good might be beautiful and the princesses are supposed to be courageous and kind but they seem to be very selfish. All they want is aPrince to love and their goal is to get one to ask them to the ball or suffer the fate. Sophie wonders why she had to be placed in the school for the evil since by just looking at her she looks like a princess. She thinks that it might have been a mistake. The book is about how boys sometimes lure some girls and end up breaking their good relationship with their female friends. It makes the reader re-imagine of the fairytales and a place where the princesses, princes and the villains undergo training.

Agatha is a loveable character from the beginning of the story because of her commitment to Sophie.

The fairytale lovers of all ages will find this story more interesting. The main characters are adaptable and well developed. There is more of the two characters than what we see.

A World Without Princes

A World Without Princes is the second book in the series. After saving themselves and other fellow students, Sophie and Agatha returns home from the school and are seen as heroes in their village and are living happily. It is after realizing that they don’t need the princes to be happy or escape from the school. Life does not seem to be a fairy tale as they thought it would be. Sophie is enjoying this honor from the villagers and makes a lot of show-offs while Agatha is not interested in fame at all. All Agatha wants is to end her story with Tedros, and this wish brings many magical arrows with a message that they wish to Sophie. The village becomes very angry and turns into a mob wanting Sophie to go to the one she wants.

The elders claim to be protecting Sophie, but the truth is that they plan to give in to the demands of the mob. They instruct Sophie to stay in the church and Agatha thinks that she will be safe there and leaves her alone. Agatha has many questions about whether this kind of life with Sophie is what she wanted and if she was wise when choosing her best friend. Sophie on the hand thinks that she needs other people to feel special but later realizes that she only needs to be kind to one person who mattered to her. It is the reason why when they find themselves back in the school as Agatha is wanting Tedros, Sophie becomes very much determined not to allow anyone to takes her best friend. To her, she thought that they needed each other as friends even though in the beginning all that mattered to her attention from people and her looks.

While back in the school they realize that it has changed and that there is no good and evil what is there is a school for the boys and the girls. It happened after the princesses decided that they don’t need the princes to be happy and this brings some chaos and fight between the girls and the boys.

Agatha is a sarcastic character, and her appearance sometimes belittled by her. She is intelligent, and we see her questioning the school and the authorities, and she does everything it takes to get her friend back to the real world. However, her love for Tedros ends up changing her personality.

A World Without Princes incorporates the themes of betrayal, friendship, magic, love, and enemies. The characters are loveable and well developed with Agatha being kind, brave and smart and Sophie being loyal and courageous to her friend. The two have a good relationship though we see some faults, weaknesses, and mistakes in it.
