"Reimagines the world of fairy tales and will make you question who is good and who is evil... Loved it!"

Rick Riordan, author of the #1 bestselling Heroes of Olympus series

"Wow. From the very first sentence, you know you're entering a thrilling world of strange fantasy. A wild and dangerous fairy-tale ride. I loved this book."

R. L. Stine, author of the bestselling Goosebumps series

"A whip-smart debut, guaranteed to make any girl think twice about wanting to be a princess. If I could bewitch you all to read it, I would. Grade: A."

Entertainment Weekly

"Invention in overdrive, The School for Good and Evil is a comedic education by a writer primed to shoot to the head of the class."

Gregory Maguire, author of the bestselling Wicked

"An imaginative way to leave black-and-white thinking behind."

Publishers Weekly

"It is not often that someone comes along who can reinvent fairy tales and reclaim their magic. Soman Chainani takes the racing energy of Roald Dahl's language and combines it with the existential intensity of J.K. Rowling's plots to create his own universe. The School for Good and Evil uses the sorcery of words and the poetry of friendship to startle, enchant, and keep us turning its pages."

Maria Tatar, Loeb Professor, Harvard University, and editor of The Classic Fairy Tales

"A funny, frightening, and fully satisfying novel that explores the meaning of true love and the vast gray area between good and evil."

San Francisco Chronicle
