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 Wicked and Matchless
"Rich and strange." -- Kirkus Reviews
"A fairy tale like no other, complete with romance, magic, humor, and a riddle that will keep you turning pages until the end." -- Ann M. Martin, author of the bestselling Babysitter's Club series
"Chainani has imagined the world where fairy tales come to life, where for every fairy princess with a 'Happily Ever After' in her future there is a villain with a tragic fate in store. But in The School for Good and Evil it's not always certain which is which." -- David Magee, screenwriter of Life of Pi and Finding Neverland
"In Chainani's richly imagined world the action never lets up for a nano-second. Young readers won't be able to stop turning the pages till they reach the surprising and satisfying conclusion." -- Tor Seidler, author of Mean Margaret, a National Book Award Finalist
"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 pages." -- Maria Tatar, Chair of Folklore and Mythology Program, Harvard University and Editor of The Classic Fairy Tales
"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...If I could bewitch you all to read it, I would. Grade: A." -- Entertainment Weekly
