Book Review

 

 

THE SCHOOL OF GOOD AND EVIL

By Soman Chainani

“Appearances deceive, intentions revealed and love and friendship tested. All in the fictional world of Gavalon, the Endless Wood and The School for Good and Evil.”

 

The School for Good and Evil is about two friends who live very different lives that find themselves in a school that trains “Fairy Tale” Heroes and Villains. One of the girls is fair and good, the other is ugly and evil.  But it’s what is on the inside that makes a person who they are, not their looks.

Both the girls have to find this out the hard way. The two friends face hardships like going to the ’wrong’  school, jealousy, horrid classes meant for the other, a prince, competitions between the schools and much more. But in the end the Witch and the Princess remain friends.
