The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainini

At the School for Good and Evil, failing your fairy tale is not an option.
Welcome to the School for Good and Evil, where best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
With her glass slippers and devotion to good deeds, Sophie knows she'll earn top marks at the School for Good and join the ranks of past students like Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Snow White. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her shapeless black frocks and wicked black cat, seems a natural fit for the villains in the School for Evil.
The two girls soon 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 among 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 and Evil is an epic journey into a dazzling new world, where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.

The School for Good and Evil is SUPER EXCITING and I loved every page!  The book is very well-written and the author makes the story and characters come alive on the page.  The story is pure fantasy but so many scenes are so vividly described that I felt like it all could actually happen in real life. I especially enjoyed the characters and the battle scenes. I hope that this is the first book in a lonnng series, I cannot wait for the sequel. I highly recommend this book for girls 9-13.  Thank you to HarperCollins Childrens' for this awesome book.

This book releases in May of 2013!

Happy reading!
