Sophie and Agatha are best friends in the village of Gavaldon , which is under a curse. Every four years, two children are taken from the village in the night and get sent to the School for Good and Evil, where they learn how to survive fairy tales. Sophie is the prettiest girl in the village, and she does lots of Good deeds, so she knows she'll ace school at the School for Good and end up as a fairy tale princess. Agatha, on the other hand, seems like a perfect fit for the School for Evil. She only wears black, lives in a graveyard, has no friends except for Sophie, and everyone thinks she's a witch. But unlike Sophie, Agatha doesn't believe any of that nonsense about the School for Good and Evil. A magic school where kids learn magic and graduate into fairy tales? Puh-lease. But when Agatha and Sophie get taken from the village, Agatha is forced to admit that the School for Good and Evil really does exist. Sophie knew all along, of course, and she was prepared to be taken. But still, nothing could have prepared her for landing in the wrong school! Now they have to figure out how to switch Schools, and try not to fail their current Schools. Sounds easy, right? WRONG. They're both failing at School, they don't fit in at all, and Sophie's roommates Hester and Anadil hate her guts. Things can't possibly get worse, right? WRONG AGAIN. Things can (and do) get worse.Sophie gets sent to the Doom Room as punishment for accidentally hurting a teacher, and when she gets back, Agatha can tell that her friend's experience in the Doom Room has changed her. Sophie grows more wicked by the day, and now the race is on to end their fairy tale and get sent home before Sophie turns into a wicked witch. Then, to make matters even more complicated, Agatha starts to like a boy named Tedros, who Sophie had liked earlier in the year. But Tedros broke Sophie's heart. Then, Sophie has a Nemesis Dream, that shows her who her Nemesis is... And it's not Tedros. Now, with Agatha and Sophie's friendship at stake, Agatha has to end this fairy tale, before Sophie turns into a villain forever. But in order to end the story, Agatha has to pick... Her prince, or her best friend? This is an interesting and great book, and a fabulous debut. The story took many twists and turns, and had me utterly fascinated the entire time. Can't wait for the rest of the series! I wonder what School I would end up in...| I'm at the School now, and it turns out, I am exactly 50% Good and 50% Evil! I am going to be switching between the two Schools every two weeks. My Evil roommates are Hester, Anadil, Sophie, and Dot. My Good roommates are Agatha and Kiko. Hester and Anadil despise me, but Sophie and Dot like me. I think Dot is, like, 51% Evil and 49% Good. I wonder how well I'll do in school. Hester and Anadil hate me, and I think it's because I'm too nice, according to them. Hester hates me even more, because we had an argument. H and A were standing outside the bathroom, yelling at me for taking too long in the shower, and I can't remember all that was said, but I ended up telling H that her hair was more greasy than bad fast food. And A kept trying to snoop in my closet, because I have a box in my closet, and I closed it just as she came into the dorm room. She said "What's in that?" and I said it was none of her beeswax, and she tried to get in the closet, but I put a locking spell on my closet door, so only I can open it. But S and D like me. I already knew S before I got here, and D is just nice. I was given three days to settle in and meet my new roommates. This is my third day, so classes start tomorrow. My first class is *groan* Uglification. I already know I'm gonna fail THAT class. But I don't think I'll do as bad as H and A expect. When I told them I liked doing craft projects and playing outside and doing my hair, they just looked at me like, "girl, you ain't gonna last a day in this school". But I think I'll prove them wrong. Hey! Idea! Whenever something interesting happens, I'll write about it here. So, readers, expect to get a lot of notifications about me updating my review. And if I run out of room, I'll just start a review for the second SGE book. And if I run out of room there, I'll start a review for the third SGE book, and so on and so on. I wonder which School I'll do better in. That's important, because that will determine whether I end up a fairy tale hero, or a fairy tale villain.
