Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
2014-03-03
In a middle volume framed as a battle of the sexes, the author pulls some clever switcheroos (The School for Good and Evil, 2013). A sincere if ill-timed wish summons Agatha and Sophie back to the twinned School for Good and Evil—to find it transformed into separate schools for girls and for boys. The latter is filled with brutal, callous, unwashed louts led (at first) by vengeful Tedros of Camelot. A scary new dean in the former has changed the fairy-tale textbooks to make all the male characters evil and instituted radical policies for the girls: "We wear pants, we don't do our nails…we even eat cheese!" Though Chainani tries to keep the rival camps entirely separate by leaving out any hint of sex or even (a mighty pull between Agatha and Tedros aside) romance, Sophie's temporary transformation into a boy at one point to sneak into the other school leads to a tender scene with Tedros. Another character turns out to be a spell-disguised boy who just preferred the girls' school. Readers will be drawn in by set pieces, including the currently obligatory Hunger Games–style competition, but nearly all turn out to be incidental to the broader plot, which ends, of course, in a cliffhanger. The closing volume should tie up those loose ends with, if the first two volumes are indicators, wild swings of terror and hilarity. (Fantasy. 11-13)

    AMAZING

    This sequel to the original book will blow your mind as the two girls trust each other less day by day. The end just leaves you with your mouth gaping open at the unexpected turn of events. I reccomend this book for ages 10+

    A Must Read

    Honestly, I was not expecting the book to be this AMAZING. Considering it was a sequal, and in my experiance sequals are usually not as good. This book was fast pasted and leaved me crying for more. At first i did not really care who Agatha went with, until the ending when i was so devastated that i nearly cried when they did not choose each other. I leaped out of bed and grabbed my phone, sighing in relief as i found out there would be a third book. This book was just as good, maybe even better than the first. I just loved the characters Dot, Ravan, Hort, and Philip. ( I know he was sophie in disguise but i don't care.

    Began reading the first book to preview something my child wante

    Began reading the first book to preview something my child wanted to read and loved it. I was so excited for the second book. Unfortunately, it was a complete let down, and I no longer feel the series is appropriate for my child. This book, reading level-wise, may be appropriate for children 8-12 years old, but the content and tone are not appropriate. This story was so focused on kissing for such a large portion of the book that it took away from the deep friendship aspect that I loved in the first book. This book presented messages intentionally or unintentionally that I think harm instead of promote the idea of being your true self and the importance of true friendships. Overall, I am more than a little disappointed in this sequel. From both a parent and teacher perspective, this book will never be a recommended book.

    Wow......

    I am just in shock right now. Just...wow. Personally, I am sooo on Agatha's side. What she did to Sophie was truly heartbreaking. I <3 Tedros!! He is just sooo cute! Those eyes and that blond hair. I want to French-kiss him on the lips all night long!!!

    Awesome book, but one slight problem

    This book was great, but around page 255, it started glitching. I was able to advance to the next page if I tapped "Go to page" and entered the number of the page I wanted to go to. Overall, I was able to get through the glitch, and it was a great book. It may have been my nook's fault, so I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem.
