With magic, a massive boarding school, and two girls on two very different paths, Soman Chainani’s ‘The School For Good and Evil’ is a must for those of you who love fantasy, fairy tales and Harry Potter.
MP!er Kelly received a free copy in exchange for an honest review, you can’t shake a stick at that can you?
Name: Kelly McFarland
Before ‘The Last Ever After’, had you read any other books in this series? If not, was it easy to follow? I had read the first book in the series, so it was really nice to have some idea of the characters. But I didn’t feel I had missed much by not having read the second book in the series as the author had written it in such a way that it didn’t matter you hadn’t read others. You still connected with the characters and you become absorbed in their story.
Can you pick a favourite character? Agatha. Agatha is my favourite character as I feel she has more depth than Sophie and has characteristics which lots of teens can relate to.
Any favourite scenes/moments? I don’t have a favourite scene as such. But I really connected with the last line of the book. it captures the ultimate message of the story: Be yourself, love yourself, you can do anything you set your mind too. Maybe the end of your tale doesn’t involve running off into the sunset with a prince, but that doesn’t make it any less of a happily ever after.
If you had to choose a song to go perfectly with this book, what would it be? ‘Ever Ever After’ by Carrie Underwood fit the whole series very well.
What kinds of fans/readers would you recommend this book to? Anyone that has ever read fairytales, loves magic, mystery, intrigue and romance. This book would appeal to them. It would also appeal to not just young adults but an older audience too.
Rate out of 10. 10. It was a very enjoyable read and a great way to wrap up the series.
