Gets better throughout the whole book! I also enjoyed the 2nd one called A World Without Princes.

"At the School for Good and Evil, children are trained to fulfill their destinies as the honorable heroes or wicked villains in the world of fairy tales. After being kidnapped from their village and brought to the school, pretty, charming Sophie and plain, moody Agatha are shocked when Sophie is sent to Evil for Henchman Training while Agatha is forced to learn Princess Etiquette in Good. Their destinies must have gotten switched... right? Find out in this sophisticated 1st book in the School for Good and Evil series, which continues in A World Without Princes. If you want another taste of dark, fairy-tale flavoured fantasy, try Adam Gidwitz's Grimm series."

Very entertaining, enjoyed it. Loved both main characters, especially Sophie, she made me laugh. Some confusing places where it wasn't clear what was going on or who was talking but it didn't interfere that much with the overall action. I thought it was nicely paced with some unexpected twists.

In the forest primeval A school for good and evil Two towers like twin heads One for the pure One for the wicked Try to escape you'll always fail The only way out is through a fairy tale. In the village of Gavaldon, Sophie with her long golden hair, perfect complexion, and good deeds seems the perfect fit for the school for good. Her friend agatha with shapeless black dresses and dislike for everyone seems the perfect fit for the school for evil. That night both girls are taken to the school. But the bird drops agatha in the school for enlightenment and enchantment and Sophie in the school for evil edification and propagation of sin. Is this a huge mistake? Or where they truly belong.

Sophie is a princess. She has long golden locks and perfect skin. All the result of two hours of vigorous extensive grooming and preening. And of course she does many good deeds like befriending the which who lives in the graveyard. She does all this so that she will go to the school for good, meet her prince, and have her very own fairytale. To her delight, almost as soon as she arrives, her fairytale begins.

But what if this isn't her fairytale?
What if Sophie isn't a princess after all?

In the forest of Primeval
A school for good and evil
Two towers like twin heads
One for the pure
One for the wicked
Try to escape you'll always fail
The only way out
Is through a fairy tale
