Overview

Wish you could go to the School for Good and Evil? Now you can! Join the ranks of heroes and villains who have walked these hallowed halls and mastered what it takes to be placed in their own fairy tales with The Ever Never Handbook.

Soman Chainani’s New York Times bestselling series (The School for Good and Evil, A World Without Princes, and The Last Ever After) comes to life in this handbook full of everything students need to learn in order to survive their own fairy tale—from dress codes and school rules to alumni portraits, kingdom maps, and much, much more.

Every year, students flock to the School for Good and Evil, ready to prepare for life in a fairy tale. The highest-ranked students become the heroes and villains of the fairy tales, while the lowest end up enchanted animals or plants (if they’re lucky, that is).

This handbook is a personal guide to help students to the top of their class—from surviving Uglification, to picking your own sidekick or henchman, to earning a part in the yearly school musical, and so much more. And of course, it’s in glorious full color and duotone because in the School for Good and Evil, very little is black-and-white.

**THIS IS ELLIE’S SPOILER-FILLED RAMBLE SO** **BEWARE** **THERE ARE TONS OF SPOILERS AHEAD** **READ AT YOUR OWN RISK** **NO, BUT SERIOUSLY** **DON’T GO ON IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE HANDBOOK** **THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO TURN BACK** **I’M NOT KIDDING** **OKAY, DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU** Oh. My. Goodness. I recently finished The Ever Never Handbook, and I’m still grinning like a total dufus. The book, engulfed in vibrant color and bursting with a familiar sort of magic, completely blew me and my (rather high) expectations away. I’d anticipated this novel so much over the past year I was a little nervous I would somehow be disappointed by it because of how much I built it up in my head, but I was

so wrong

. Michael Blank’s illustrations are jaw-dropping and absolutely gorgeous. The student portraits inked out the characters I’d spent years imagining on my own and GOSH were they beautiful and perfect. The picture of Sophie’s new School For Evil actually made me gasp because the color practically glowed on the page. The illustration of Tedros’ arrow nearly piercing Agatha was definitely one of my favorites, depicting a moment from book 1 that really stayed with me the past couple years. The pictures of Nymphs, Fairies, Crogs, Spiricks, and Stymphs were spellbinding, terrifying, and whimsical all at once. Oh, and how on earth could one forget the GLORIOUS comic strip portions written by Hort? I could so easily imagine him writing and drawing every part of it, and it made me giggle so terribly hard. And in addition to the lovely art, Soman’s--and Ami’s--writing was simply AMAZING. I’ve never been so captivated by a Course Catalog! The FAQ section was so exciting and humorous, and having Hester shove letters between the pages was such a clever idea. It was also a bit relatable, since I have an awful habit of slipping important notes, permission slips, and study guides into my books. “An Ever Never Roundtable” was SO. FREAKING. GOOD. I felt as if I were meeting up with a group of old friends as I heard them banter back and forth. It reminded me how much each character has grown through the series and honestly why I love each one. I never expected the Handbook to make me emotional… but it did. Quite a lot. Now my copy is adorned with various small post-it-note sort of contraptions, marking some of my favorite parts. They include things like the hilarious idea of someone possibly using the storian as liquid eyeliner *cough SOPHIE cough* and the supossed Into The Woods reference when Sophie saids “Greens. Greens. Nothing but greens,” (pg. 137). Not to mention when Sophie guessed I was Agatha in a quiz or her perfect song “Some Girls”. Oh, and the AWESOME part where not only did Agatha write to Hester, but also reveal in her letter that she, Tedros, and Sophie were frequently corresponding. What about when Sophie admitted to Hort she remembered their dance or when Tedros perfectly explained how he and Agatha wouldn’t be having kids anytime soon? What a relief. Oh, and the explosive discovery that a new student named Nicola will soon be arriving to the schools, unaware she’s destined to save them? Couldthispossiblybetheplotofthesecretbook? Overall, I experienced a rollercoaster of emotions today and am so grateful I got to. To Soman Chainani, Ami Boghani, and Michael Blank--thank you. Thank you

so

much for creating such a wonderful book and such an magical world your readers can immerse themselves in.
