    2.75 Torn on this, I feel like it presented a lot of very interesting things about gender but did not follow through -- which can make it problematic. But I also feel like it might be resolved in the next book? So rating is low for now until I continue on.

    Final Rating: 4.5 stars (rounded to 5 on GR)Disclaimer: There may be minor spoilers of book 1 in this review. Consider yourselves warned if you haven't read the first book.And Sophie and Agatha lived happily ever after, for girls don't need princes for love to call.No, they don't need princes in their fairy tales at all.When I first read The School for Good and Evil sometime last year, I appreciated so much how it portrayed very dark themes in a seemingly light, humorous, and fluffy tone. I enjoyed how it mocked the many tropes and worn-out clichés that are present in many of the stories we read in our childhood ( like princesses having to learn how to communicate with animals, princes having classes on heroism, the "evil ones" needing some uglification, etc. etc). And most of all, I loved how on the surface, it IS about fairy tales and it IS about fairy tale characters, but underneath it all are deep, dark and real issues that we tackle even in our day-to-day lives.In short, The School for Good and Evil was intense. Yeah, it seemed fluffy and light-hearted, but seriously? Don't let that silly and vibrant cover fool you. I was a raging, emotional wreck when I finished it. It was so intense that I doubted the succeeding books would be able to topple it.Obviously, I was being naive. I was not only a raging, emotional wreck - I was a raging and ugly emotional wreck. I didn't think it would get any more darker and complex after the first book, but I was proven wrong, and if I had it my way, I'd just write "intense" over and over in this review so you guys can get the idea (if you haven't already).First, a recap. When we think of fairy tales, we oftentimes expect a world  of happily-ever-afters, of rainbows and butterflies and fairies, of witches and wizards and ogres getting their asses whooped by a Prince Charming. Apparently, that is also true in the world Chainani created, but before these characters live out their stories, they go to a special school and learn how to act like their characters first. Princess and princes versus ogres, witches, and hunchbacks. Good versus Evil. Beautification versus Uglification. Every four years, this school kidnaps two girls from our realm to become characters in their own fairy tales, and that's how two girls, Sophie and Agatha, found themselves whisked away to this mysterious place. This has always been Sophie's dream, so she was ecstatic, but Agatha wanted nothing more than to go back to their normal lives. Unfortunately, the blonde and lively Sophie found herself placed in the Evil school, and the pessimistic brunette, Agatha, in Good's. Thinking it was a bad misunderstanding and a mistake, the former was determined to make things "right". And that's where things get really... chaotic.In A World Without Princes, Agatha and Sophie continue their normal lives outside the magical realm, a happily-ever-after they thought they wanted, but alas, doubts and regrets abound. Having experienced acceptance aside from her best friend, Agatha starts to question if this life with Sophie really was the ending she wanted, if she really made the right choice in choosing her best friend. Sophie, on the other hand, couldn't be any happier. She had thought she needed other people to feel special, but she realized she only needed to be the best for that one person who mattered the most to her: Agatha. And that's why when they find themselves back in the magical realm because of Agatha's yearning to be with Tedros, Sophie becomes determined to not let anyone else get her best friend. To her, they only needed each other.SophieIn the first book, I loathed Sophie. She was hateful, selfish, and conceited. She only thought of herself and would do dangerous things at the expense of other people. But despite this apparent greed and selfishness, underneath was a complex individual who simply wanted to be loved and admired. Not exactly a bad thing to wish for - all of us have felt this at least once or twice in their lives. Sophie's mistake was her narrow-minded thinking that there was only one way of achieving what she wanted. That's why despite her being an infuriating little nitwit, I thought she was the most complex character in the first book. Her development from bad to worse and then to her gradual awareness and realization may have been a wild ride, but it was one that shook me to the very core.Here, we still see a bit of her selfish side. That can't be helped, of course; Sophie is still Sophie, after all. She craves for attention, she wants people to adore her, but these are all secondary now as long as she has Agatha by her side. In the end, her only wish is the same - to not be alone. And it is because of this wish that things become haywire again, and it's like the first book all over again where she does things for the name of love, but she does them misguidedly. But at the same time, while she did do and say things that were highly questionable, you'll find yourself not having the heart to blame her for it. It's like, you can really see and understand how desperate she truly was. She's so scared of being alone that it pushes her to think and act irrationally. She doesn't do them for the heck of it, but because for her it made sense and she thought they were the only ways of keeping what was important to her. That doesn't mean I don't think they were selfish at all - they were. They really, really were. They were done because she was scared for her own well-being. But if our desperation clouds our judgement, can we really say we think straight?On the topic of villains...That's why I see her as more of an anti-heroine than an antagonist. She's absolutely complex and three-dimensional, that I hate her and love her at the same time. She's the kind of "villain" (not the quote, unquote) I prefer to see in literature - the kind who don't see the world in a simple black and white, the type of people who have deeper reasons  for doing the things they do. She reminds me of many people in society today who aren't inherently evil or malicious, but because of desperation, they resort to doing bad things. Examples are the kind who'd steal from a food stall to feed their children who haven't eaten anything for 3 days straight; who'd rob a rich person to pay for their parents' medical bills, and; who'd sell their bodies against their own wills just to send their children to school. I'm not saying these should be tolerated just because the person doing it has a sad backstory... in the end, it's the action that matters, not the intention; however, the point I'm trying to make here is as a reader, we have more awareness than the characters in a book, and it is this "knowing" that there is a deeper reason in the actions they do that other characters don't see/know that makes individuals like Sophie highly interesting to read.How about Agatha?I liked Agatha in the first book. She was a really cool person who was sarcastic and witty, who discreetly mocked the frilly things fairy tale princesses were known for. She may have been belittled for her allegedly sad appearance, but she was highly intelligent and she wasn't afraid to show it. She questioned the school, she questioned the authorities, and she did everything she could to get her and Sophie back to the real world. That's why I was a bit disappointed to see her kind of lifeless and dull here. While I was reading the book, I kept on wondering what the heck happened to the Agatha I loved in A School for Good and Evil? There were times she was so out of character that I was left wondering if her love for Tedros changed her personality altogether. I also didn't like the flip-flopping she would sometimes do. Tedros or Sophie? Sophie or Tedros? It was kind of infuriating to see her become a little  addition to that some of her intelligence that was very apparent in the first book slowly ebbed away, so it was like adding insult to injury.As for Tedros...He was kinda a pathetic prince in the first book (even though I shipped him and Agatha so hard), but he kinda grew balls of steel here. There were times I got really frustrated with him, though. For such a supposedly high-profile prince, he was easily manipulated by other forces, and because of this I questioned his love for our brunette princess. If you really do love her, then why do you distrust her so much to the point of wanting to do bodily harm? His resolve in the middle of the book seemed so far-fetched to me that it was just undoubtedly ridiculous and silly. Still, he was given more exposure and substance here, and he's cool overall. We get more of his backstory here regarding his and his parents' past (King Arthur and Queen Guinevere!), so that was cool.And so...Nevertheless, the issues I had in this book were very minor in comparison to the intense feels it gave me. Despite Agatha's, erm, character devolvement, and Tedros' exaggerated resolve, Sophie's complexity made this book awesome for me. She's really the star of the series here, and all the frustration, anger, and sadness one undergoes with regards to her are all worth it. She's outstanding in a sense her character opens a lot of discussion and discourse. Just be wary that this is darker than it seems. If you're looking for a light read, this ain't your book unfortunately. But please don't let that stop you! This one is truly a great book and should not be missed.[rating-report]

    Minor spoilers for book oneIf you know me, you'll know that I very rarely give books five stars. Even if I really love it, I normally mark it as a 4.5 and call it a day. Which is why it came as such a surprise that I slapped a 5-star on A World Without Princes right off the bat. I went in with sky-high expectations, considering how much I loved The School for Good and Evil, and it broke every single one of them. A World Without Princes picks up a couple months after the events of the first book. Sophie and Agatha are back home living their happily ever after. But one ill-fated wish later, the girls find themselves back at The School For Good & Evil, except it's not as they remember.As the girls chased their elegant sliver-haired bun through Valir's princely blue arches and murals, they gawked at the once virile visions of princes destroying demons and helpless princesses, now flaunting different endings: Snow White smashing out of her glass coffin with her fists, Red Riding Hood slitting the wolf's throat, Sleeping Beauty setting her spindle on fire.The title is fitting indeed. As a result of Sophie and Agatha's happy ending last time, the other girls learned that they don't don't need a prince to save them—they can save themselves. The princes and Neverboys have been kicked out and The School For Good & Evil is now the School for Girls.They've taken feminism to a tyrannical level by teaching the students that boys are the scum of the earth and should be enslaved while girls rule. Masculine traits, such as destroying things, are discouraged. From now on, it's all girl all the time.What I love about this series is that it isn't afraid to tackle big subjects, but does so in a fun and humorous way. The School for Girls is what the world would look like if extreme feminist Nazis took over. There's no equality. Boys and girls are as different as Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus and must be enemies. "Everything in this school is about being a girl!" Hester screeched. "Do you know how hard I've tried to prove I'm more than a girl and now I have to live in a castle full of them! You can't have a school without boys! Even we know that and we'd rather kill ourselves than touch one!"I completely agree with Hester. I hate the sexist, misogynist world we live in, but I don't think swinging the spectrum the other way would be a good idea either. It's all about balance. This book also questions what it entails to be a boy and vice versa."Boys never have real feelings. At least not ones that they don't toss or hide."Society loves to force the mentality that men are from Mars and women are from Venus on us, and this books just laughs at those stereotypes, which is fantastic. Pink doesn't have to be for girls and blue doesn't have to be for boys. I like wearing dresses and wearing my hair long, but I also love reading Shounen manga and playing video games. There isn't supposed to be a line!God bless the parents who raised this child.Plus, I love, love, love the fact that Chainani never mentions the words "lesbian" or "gay" even though it's such a huge part of the narrative. Love is love, we shouldn't have to differentiate between them.Speaking of the romance, I don't even know who to ship anymore.This is an real love triangle. It's not just two boys fighting over a girl, it's three-way. As for the characters, they're as wonderful as I remembered them. Sophie, my darling, darling Sophie. She continues to make a lot of bad decisions here, partially because of selfishness, but nowhere near the level in the first book. She's grown so much and I can understand her motives even when she does Evil.Tedros gets a lot more screen time here and as a result, his character is far more rounded out than in the first book. He's not just a dense pretty boy anymore. Like Sophie, he makes a lot of bad choices, but I can get where he's coming from. He just wants the same thing Sophie wants and, well, now you see my dilemma in the romance department. If you haven't picked up this series yet, run to your nearest book store immediately. It will dazzle you and leave you with a book hangover, but you won't even care because an overdose of awesome is always welcome.Now if you'll excuse me, I'll just be here waiting for the next book to come out.My review of The School For Good & EvilMy review of The Last Ever After

    ATTENTION: spoilers for book one!“Nothing in this world was ever certain. Princes could become as frightening as ogres. Princesses could become villains. Best friends could become enemies.”Story ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ „And Sophie and Agatha lived happily ever after, for girls don't need princes for love to call... No, they don't need princes in their fairy tales at all”Finally Agatha and Sophie have a happy end together. They’re back in their home town living their old life. They don’t need princes to have a happy end. But is that really the truth? Agatha misses Tedros so much, a wish so strong forms in her heart, that it has the power to bring them back to the school of good and evil. But the school changed - now they’re not separated into good and evil, no, now they’re is a school for the girls and one for the boys. Princesses don’t need princes for their happy end - that’s why chaos is reigning in the fairy tales and there’s a war forming between boys and girls. This was so much fun! I loved the first book, especially the world in it, but the second book is even better. I can’t wait for the movie adaptation! I’m so excited. There was love, friendship, betrayal, magic, enemies and so much action! I loved it! And the ending was soooo heartbreaking. 💔Characters ⭐️⭐️⭐️The characters are a little bit flat and plain but still very lovable. Agatha and Sophie are the main characters - next to Tedros who plays a big role. Agatha is still my favorite - she is smart, kindhearted and brave. Whereas Sophie is really egoistic, she is really brave and loyal to her friend now. At least she tries to. She tries to be good, to keep the bad witch in herself at bay, but you can’t erase the evil in yourself... And Tedros... I don’t like him. He is such a child, I mean they all are, but he is the most childish. He is stubborn, a little stupid, but at least he’s brave. All in all I liked some characters, especially Agatha and her three witches, they are the best. World ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I loved the world in the first book and I fell even more in love with it in the second book. The school, the teachers, the students. It was just so enjoyable, exciting and funny. In this book they’re not only the schools, but the whole magical fairy tale world is mixed and chaos is reigning.Princesses kill/ evict their princes, because now they can have an own happy ending. The schools are now separated into boys and girls and they’re enemies. The schools are different, the boys are supported by outcast princes and the girls are taught that they do not need a prince to be happy. That witches and princesses can be friends, partners and change the world. The world building in the whole series is really exceptional with magical details and a whole imagined world ♥️Relationships ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The friendship between Agatha and Sophie is strong. But every strong friendship has their weaknesses, faults and mistakes. We see Agatha torn between Sophie and Tedros - torn between friendship and love. It was really cute, but you can see that this is a middle grade book with a touch of YA.„When you're young, you think your best friend is everything. But once you find real love... it changes. Your friendship can never be the same after that. Because no matter how much you try to keep both, your loyalty can only lie with one.”Writing style ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️This is a really simple writing, but it is funny and really really enjoyable. I had so much fun reading it. Bonus: they’re also letters, schedules and magical book entries. So cool!„It's the problem with fairy tales. From far away, they seem so perfect. But up close, they're just as complicated as real life.”

    Well, this series went off the deep end really fast. For those who don’t know, the first book in this series, THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL, was about two girls who are not quite what they seem surviving in a duo of fairy tale schools which had simplistic ideas the nature of good and evil and simplistic ideas about gender roles. I would have ventured to call the first book progressive … Agatha and Sophie learn that they don’t need a fairy tale prince to be happy and that relationships with other girls can be just as important as relationships with boys. However, second installment, A WORLD WITHOUT PRINCES, is virulently anti-feminist and reverses the themes and messages of the first book in many ways. IN AWWP, the fairy tale schools which had previously been split into Good and Evil are now split into male and female. The school for girls is now run by a straw feminist, Dean Sader who apparently hates all men because she was kicked out of the school ten years ago for being sadistic and incompetent and later replaced by her brother who the book tells us repeatedly was much, much more competent. Dead Sader, like most straw feminists, wants to enslave all men. She also tells the girls to do whatever makes them happy which leads to some of them shaving their heads and eating chocolate. We are supposed to believe that girls doing whatever makes them happy is evil. But of course, we later find out that Dean Sader was doing all this because she wanted to get a guy. I am not making this stuff up. Meanwhile, the school for boys is a hotbed of misogyny and most of the boys seem to want to literally kill the girls – Sophie and Agatha in particular. Tedros, the male hero who is splashed prominently across the cover of the book, spends most of the novel literally trying to murder Sophie and Agatha. The narrative seems to want us to believe that if only Sophie and Agatha had been a little nicer to poor Tedros then he wouldn’t have gone down this dark path. The responsibility for Tedros’s morality is placed almost entirely upon the girls rather than on Tedros himself. But the only wrong that Agatha and Sophie seem to have done to Tedros (or at least the one he keeps complaining about) was rejecting him as a romantic interest. The narrative keeps justifying Tedros’s violent fantasies by telling us how bad it felt for him to be rejected. In many ways, this is much scarier than the straw feminist crap of the girls’ school. At least we can recognize “enslave all boys” as a ridiculous fantasy that has no place in the real world. But when some men are rejected romantically they often DO become violent towards women. Sometimes they kill them. This is a real life situation and the author’s attempts at justifying it by placing the blame on the girls is sickening. The fact that the target audience for this book is pre-teen girls makes the book’s attitudes towards women all the more disturbing. The central conflict in terms of interpersonal relationships is that Agatha has to “choose” between Sophie and Tedros. There is no real reason why Agatha should have to choose between having a best friend and having a boyfriend other than … oh yeah, the book is really freaking sexist. I think what the author WANTS to do is to present Agatha, Sophie, and Tedros as being in a bisexual love triangle where Agatha has to choose between Sophie and Tedros (and Sophie also has to choose between Agatha and Tedros … and Tedros has to choose between Agatha and Sophie). But since this is a Middle Grade novel, the author is too scared to actually DO this. There are two same-sex kisses in this series and yet the book can’t quite bring itself to suggest that the love that Agatha and Sophie feel for one another could be romantic. The book goes on for far too long and there is a lot of magic school stuff that Harry Potter frankly does a lot better (this was the case in the first book as well). After awhile, there is some gender bending which I found to be one of the more compelling aspects of the book. I know it may seem like I’ve focused overly much on the gender relations in this review, but this stuff is what the story is all about. You can’t read a page of this book without running into some sexist claptrap. I don’t know whether or not the author even intends to be sexist – I just think that he’s one of those writers who doesn’t always have a great handle on what his work is saying thematically (there were hints of this in the first book as well). There are some good points about the book – the characterization tends to be decent, especially the characterization of Sophie in my opinion. The world building is pretty good and there are a lot of cute little ideas about the magic schools. There’s an exciting story somewhere in here if you can somehow get past the inherent sexism of the storyline. It’s a real shame that the story went the way it did, because a novel about the girls and boys being separated into warring schools could have been so good if handled correctly. I was going to give the novel two stars despite its considerable problems because there are some promising aspects of it. But then I got to the end. The ending makes no sense. It also completely reverses the themes and messages of the first book. The ending was what made me bump this book down to one star.

    "And Sophie and Agatha lived happily ever after, for girls don't need princes for love to call — no, they don't need princes in their fairy tales at all." A solid 5 stars for a book that focuses on friendships and female empowerment.

    Whyyyyyy??What happened to youuuuu??Book. Book, I had such high hopes for you. You ended so magnificently before ... you gave me hope that there was a book out there, where girls can be friends! Where girls can put other girls before boys! Where love isn't always about the type that makes your body parts tingle and swell, but also about fighting for each other and making sacrifices for friends.You gave me hope that somewhere out there was a book, geared for younger readers, where black isn't always black, and white isn't always white.See, one thing I loved about The School for Good and Evil is that it absolutely defied stereotypes. It taught us that we can be more than what society expects of us. We are more than what others label us, or what others think of us.One of its many empowering messages was that we should look beyond appearances, and that we can be who we set out to be despite what little others think of us.A World Without Princes completely blew those messages away; tore out the book to pieces, wiped its ass with its mangled pages, and flushed it down the toilet.Sophie and Agatha, both having made a wish, find themselves back in the School. This time, both houses have reassembled itself into a School for Girls vs a School for Boys, and both at the brink of war. It is up to them to fix their "happily every after" and prevent an all-out massacre; but how can they do that when Agatha secretly longs for Tedros - now leader of the School for Boys, whilst Sophie secretly sabotages every possibility her friend has of reuniting with her lost prince?From the beginning we are smacked full of an absurdly cartoonish backdrop. The School for Girls has evolved so much that it blurs the lines between feminism and misandry -- for sure bound to muddle younger readers' concept of the former. It's a pity because there were many values there that should be taken more seriously: girls can choose to dress as they please, wear make-up for their own enjoyment (rather than to attract the boys) or do without it at all, they are taught how to be strong and self-sufficient (rather than dependent on their knights in shining armor) ...... all very empowering and interesting stuff; but it is then shoved under a carcass of other, more extreme, ideas: all men are evil and should be exterminated; men prevent women from reaching their own happily-ever-afters; women have been unwitting slaves to men and their wiles.Mashed together like that and without any distinction in the narrative as to the merits vs absurdities of each "rule", I fear younger readers will inevitably brush ALL of them aside as outlandish, laughable concepts -- including, unfortunately, the rather logical and worthy ideas that has popped up in the School for Girls.Or even worse. Associate feminism with the inherent hatred of men.But no matter. At that point, I was giving A World Without Princes the benefit of the doubt. I just knew that ... hey, this is the "plot twist". In the end, they'll see the misandry for what it is, and fix it. Right? They'll end up with a better, balanced, and still pro-feminist school that incorporates boys as well as girls ... right?Strike one.Maybe a knock off one star for that failure alone. Alright, two stars. That was a pretty big blunder, after all. But what made me knock off another star was how it all turned out in the end.Poor Sophie. Poor, poor, poor Sophie. She tried so hard to be good, and she didn't even actively do anything deserving the title of a "villain". Sure, she was selfish, she sabotaged ... all under the name of love and fear; but these are all mistakes one makes at a young age. We act on our selfish whims. That's what we do, and how we learn.But in the end, it's as if all of Sophie's attempts of being "good" and shedding off her "evil" title was all in vain. She was pretty much shoved into her position. What happened to shades of grey? What happened to no absolute blacks and whites?What happened to Agatha? To the loving, forgiving, always-there-for-her-friend Aggie whom I came to root for? At the very end, she pulled a stunt I would never have expected from her. This book ... the ending ... it has exactly the opposite message of its predecessor. While The School for Good and Evil worked under the premise of "there are no absolutes", it seems that in A World Without Princes, there is nothing but absolutes.You can only have a relationship with a person of the opposite sex.(view spoiler)[This I won't go too much in to, because while I would have loved for Tedros to be "exploring the possibilities" with "Filip", I don't exactly expect it in a middle-grade read. At least, not yet. Not in this day and age. (hide spoiler)]You can only have your best friend or a boy/girl friend.You can only be good, or evil.***>My review of The School for Good and Evil #1You can also read reviews over at my blog["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    ER.MAH.GERD. Thee cutest fairytale I have read in a long time!Synopsis:Good Reads DescriptionThis year, best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where all the lost children go: the fabled School for Good & Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. As the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon, Sophie has dreamed of being kidnapped into an enchanted world her whole life. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, she knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile Agatha, with her shapeless black frocks, wicked pet cat, and dislike of nearly everyone, seems a natural fit for the School for Evil.But when the two girls are swept into the Endless Woods, they find their fortunes reversed—Sophie’s dumped in the School for Evil to take Uglification, Death Curses, and Henchmen Training, while Agatha finds herself in the School For Good, thrust amongst handsome princes and fair maidens for classes in Princess Etiquette and Animal Communication.. But what if the mistake is actually the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are…?The School for Good & Evil is an epic journey into a dazzling new world, where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.Doesn't that sound amazing? Well it is. This book provided me with such an adventure during a hard time. I was recently struggling with a lot of personal things and ended up finding this book at the library. I picked it up and read it in two days. This book showed me true friendship and gave a whole new light to fairytales.I felt the same way I did when reading through the Harry Potter series. I love when school life is done right in books. The creativity throughout this novel was so charming. From the way each shool functions, to their food, spells, and the characters, I fell in love. Enough rambling... let's get down to it. To avoid spoilers, scroll down to The Verdict for a brief summary.----World Building Chailin created a world within many with this series. We are so used to hearing about different kingdoms within each fairytale we all know and love, but I never expected the author to connect them in such a way to make them flow so well together. The idea of two schools training the chosen children to live in new fairytales, was brilliant. I felt as though Gavaldon was a very weak civilization. Considering every else other kingdom already knows of the schools and wishes for their children to be chosen for greatness, made Gavaldon seem a bit.. out of the loop? They are merely referred to as readers and to me belittles the children from there. The author's description of the schools and his creativity in making the two school completely different but work together, was so well done, I couldn't get enough of the two schools. The School Masters Tower was such a neat concept to me, having the one who controlls the storian (the cute little pen who writes the fairytales) looking over both schools was really intriguing and the entire time I wanted to know more.The forest surrounding the school preventing anyone from entering the school grounds was extremely creepy (IN A GOOD WAY). There are so many fairytale creatures dwelling within it's depths that I kept wondering what would be the next thing to show up. The world felt so new yet nostalgic and I don't think anyone could have written it better. The CharactersAgatha and Sophie are the books main focus. I found the two girls, being so different, also flowed together well. I think we've all felt what it's like to be alone and having that one friend who is always there through everything is something we all want to keep in tact forever. Seeing the determination within the two girls was extremely heart warming.I found the transformation between Sophie and Agatha to be fitting. Sophie eventually turned into the thing she dreaded and Agatha ended up being the last thing she ever expected. The complete opposite of eachother.I really enjoyed most of the side characters but felt like Tedros, Beatrix and all the Evers were a bit flat for me. I felt like they didn't really stand out. They had no originality and I honestly questioned why Agatha chose Tedros to fall for Tedros in the first place. She deserves a lot better....Now, onto the School Master.... this was a very odd character for me. Considering he was one of the brothers of Good and Evil who started it all, I found his mind to be completely corrupted by so much anger. Why the frig was he running a school full of children, let alone wanting Sophie to be with him? Weird. Plot This was such an interesting take on Fairy Tales. The fact all of them have to go to a school first before being chosen for their own Fairy Tale? I dig it. But the school wasn't the thing to bring me to love the book. It was the fact the two girls were opposite by appearance but both believed their appearance determined their personalities too. The fact Sophie thought she was a princess while dressed in the pinkest of dresses and Agatha thought she was a witch due to her living situation and black dresses, came to be the opposite of who they actually were! MIND BLOWING STUFFFFFFFFFFF It's like the saying "Don't judge a book by its cover." (I do everytime... oops) BUT IT APPLIES TO THESE GIRLS TOO. This book was so well written and beautifully told. It felt more like an adventure than just some story. I give this book at LEAST five stars. It not only helped me get my mind clear from the stressful things going on in life, but also gave me the nostalgia of a good fairy tale. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO THOSE WHO ENJOY FAIRY TALES! -Grimm

    I'm really enjoying this series but the first half of the book always goes slower than the second half. Clearly, I'm fine with it since I'm onto the third already.

    *sighs deeply* This one’s gonna be a rant, guys. It makes me sad, because this series had so much promise and the audiobooks are wonderful. The School for Good and Evil had some worrisome themes, but I was hoping they would be cleared up in A World Without Princes. Actually, though, the messages of the series have only gotten more upsetting with time. Though I did still really enjoy listening to the book, and Lee’s narration is totally on point, I can no longer ignore the rage-inducing aspects.Read the full review at A Reader of Fictions.

    A dream is a wish your heart makesAt the onset of A World Without Princes we find that Sophie and Agatha have been returned to their home village of Gavaldon and life has been far from what they expected. Initially they are welcomed back and heralded as heroic curse breakers of the missing children. Staues of them are erected in the town square and they have adoring fans. They are even about to put on a musical re-enactment of their time spent at school, to be written, directed and starring none other than Sophie of course. But soon the townsfolk love for them fizzles out, their fans no longer dote on them and their parents are working on each of their last nerves. To top it all off the townspeople's love quickly turns to malice when the village is repeatedly attacked by unseen assailants that are after Sophie's life when Agatha makes an unexpected wish.A fairytale is but a mad dash thru the woods awayThus escape and return our young ladies to the land of fairytale and their School for...Girls! and Boys!? That's right - by ending their fairytale the way they did in The School for Good and Evil, a drastic change has been wrought upon all of the kingdoms in this world. Women have punted the men from their castles and princesses no longer wish to be rescued by princes, instead insisting on rescuing themselves. Women view men as obsolete, and men - well they are bedraggled and seething with anger at the girls that caused it all.You bet your sweet...The stakes are even higher than the last time around as all the boys and men are out for blood where Sophie and Agatha are concerned. They will stop at nothing to see the girls dead, especially Sophie.There are some devious new characters with mysteries surrounding them and of course we see again all of the previous characters but vastly changed. We do however see somewhat of a repeat in behavior from Sophie and Agatha from the first book. Agatha is essentially moaning on and on about how they must go home and Sophie insists upon staying, with the expected flip flopping again. This is probably the one of the sticking points that I didn't love. I also have to admit that while Agatha is normally my favorite of the two I found her insistent behavior about going home and her unwillingness to think about anything other than what she thinks is best, to be rather annoying this time? I would have expected some of the lessons she learned previously to have stuck to her better. Thankfully my annoyance didn't last long. Another event we get to see again is the Trial by tale, but a much deadlier one.I absolutely have to note that I experienced a whirlwind love affair with the first book, then why the 4 instead of 5 star? The School for Good and Evil was so new, so fresh – it gave me butterflies in my stomach and there was much oohing and awwing on my part over the plight of the characters and how it made me utterly nostalgic for my teen years. I saw so many of the behaviors reflected back onto everyday real people and this second book A World Without Princes still brings all of those things to the table. I started out all oodles of in infatuated with it and now it’s settled into a deep appreciation. Because of how much I adored the first book I built up these characters in my mind (particularly Hort) about how I expected and thought they would act and proceed. Thus when I returned to the world and they didn’t that altered my personal experience with them. I think many of us readers suffer from the “we know best” mentality thinking that we know these characters and they couldn’t possibly stray from what we had in mind for them. How Dare They!? Right? But ultimately we are reading the author’s creation and we’ve got to go with that flow and learn this story and enjoy it for the via the author’s vision, not our own. Ok maybe I’m ranting. I have to admit the only reason I felt I needed to explain myself was because of Hort. He’s a secondary character and some of you may not have the attachment to him that I do but he’s the one that brought on my rant and the character that I still smitten with though his characterization continued in a way I hadn’t anticipated. Ultimately, these are going to be a set of books that I know I’ll be reading to my kids to help bring their young lives into perspective. So, some might wonder – does this mean you love the second book less? No, absolutely not. I still love it with a vengeance.What do you see?While the first book was asking readers to examine their beliefs on good and evil, right and wrong or ugly and beautiful; A World Without Princes takes that one step further by asking us to take a closer look at gender roles and even gender identity. I loved how open minded this made things. The author has a marvelous way of poking at issues in the best kind of ways. Yes, these are children's books but the topics that are interwoven throughout the narrative are ones that will get even an adult thinking deeply.A Note on Print vs Audio: I have both read these as well as listened to the audio. If you read it then you’ll be treated to absolutely lovely illustrations at the start of every chapter. If you listen the narration is superb! The narrator brings these characters to life in a way that I haven’t experienced with other audio narrators. I highly recommend both formats – or you can be silly like me and do both.Read my interview with the author at my site : Not Yet Read

    Okay.Agatha has gotten fairly stupider after book 1.(yes Aggie, we know you like trusting people and not jumping to conclusions- but maybe, sometimes you should....)Tedros again has been really unnecessary.(not that I'm complaining)Yes we get it. All the women in your life are backstabbing witches. Accept it and get over it.Now.Sophie.The character that instilled in me a plethora of feelings.poor,misunderstood,irritating,loyal,shallow,confused etc. (you get it) Sophie.No one truly loves her and she doesn't think before making life changing decisions (you would've thought she'd have learnt her lesson by now...)The ending was fine.Although, I am dying to find out what happens next.

    ***Spoilers for The School for Good and Evil Book#1***Once upon a time a Princess and a Witch became friends….best friends and choose each other over everyone else including the handsome Prince. “And Sophie and Agatha lived happily ever after, for girls don't need princes for love to call... No, they don't need princes in their fairy tales at all”But what happens in fairytale land when girls decide they don’t need Princes to have Happy Ever After’s? Book 1 in the School for Good and Evil focused on the tropes of good and evil but since Agatha (good) and Sophie (evil) chose each other to be happy everything is up to be changed and it seems a war of the sexes is now the game. Princesses all over the Kingdom have re-written their fairytales and kicked out their Princes. The school towers have changed from Good and Evil to Girls and Boys. Things have gone greatly amiss in Sophie and Agatha’s absence and heartbroken Tedros is convinced that to win and keep Agatha forever this time Sophie must die.Things I liked: The side characters where fun Dot especially. The Coven of witch girls want to get the school back to good and evil are helping Agatha and Sophie out added nice moments of comic relief.“A prince and a witch, willing to kill each other for you,” she rasped in her scratchy voice. “If it was me, I’d feel flattered.” She watched the rodents disembowel the lizard and lifted her hooded red eyes. “Thankfully I don’t have feelings.”Dot trying to give up her evil ways and become popular experimenting with dieting and makeup as well as the Princesses letting themselves go and try new things stepping out of their stereotypes were all a lot of fun reading. Sophie and Agatha even had some good moments. Most of the time I’m infuriated with Sophie but she can be funny and have some redeeming qualities at times.“How rude!” Sophie scolded the stunned troll. “Even Cinderella’s prince asked permission!” Sophie pried her shoe loose and smacked the troll with it. “And that’s for causing trouble between perfectly happy pairs,” she said, smiling at Agatha as the troll swelled furious red, about to smite her. Sophie peered down at it. “You know, I used to be just like you.” The troll deflated, confused. “But now I have my friend back,” Sophie whispered. “A friend who makes me Good.” She patted the troll’s head. “One day I hope you’ll find a friend too.”Problems: It took forever to get back to the school and get things really rolling. The author seems to be setting up something with the village and Sophie’s parents true story but it seemed to take a long time and I got a little bored with it since I wanted to get back to the school and Tedros.Sophie is always clamoring on about how she is really ‘Good’, I felt like this was just repeated way too much and that some of the Agatha/Sophie friendship storyline was a rehash from the prior book. The same with Tedros he made almost exactly the same mistakes that he made with Agatha in the first book, never trusting her completely and messing everything up because of it.Overall – this one is a little darker and had a little gender weirdness happen at times. I’m glad it didn’t turn into another love triangle romance though so I will give it props for that. The ending is on a small cliff hanger not too bad though. I enjoyed the read but it wasn’t nearly as good as the first. Let’s hope it is just a little middle book melancholy and the series ends on a high note.

    3.5 Stars Still good, but not as great as the first story. Reason for it?Unlike what happened with the first book which I felt was more complex _ and more YA_ this one felt a little toned down...maybe the reason has to do with Agatha's character that in the first book was so amazing, but in this one, the girl felt definitely dumber. It felt as if the author was trying to say, if you're good, you're going to lose a lot of your brain cells.Sophie on the other hand, is more amazing than ever. She's a character that has actually grown, who knows what she's done and is trying to repent...Thing is, her methods still suck! So once again she gets into one big mess (view spoiler)[like getting transformed into a boy. A boy who is always thinking about food! And who has a pimple, lol (hide spoiler)], that can cause her doom.Besides the main characters, we have a villain with a capital V.We also get more insight into other characters lives, namely a certain evil teacher...Once again the author meshes all our preconceptions of what princes and princess should act and behave, giving them more depth and consistence.In this volume, the author gives us fairy tale characters well aware of the constrictions of their own world: sexism, misogynistic notions... And this is what happens when they're taken to the limit: when one again, divisions are made. This time not between good and evil, but between girls and boys.As for the end, let's say that if I hadn't the third book to get right into the story again, I would be mad as a wet cat.Cliffhanger alert!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    MEH this was not as good as book one which was disappointing. I found the plot and the characters very frustrating a lot of the time. Sophie drives me crazy and I'm not entirely able to put my finger on why. Tedros felt like a bit of an unnecessary character tbh. I didn't like that so much of the plot was based on miscommunication like:Agatha thinks this is what happened but Sophie knows that's not true. Sophie isn't going to say anything so Agatha is going to try to talk to Tedros but Tedros is mad at her and won't give her the chance to explain anything. Then repeat that for a lot of the book.I was interested in the story and I honestly love Agatha as a character but the whole book was a little frustrating. The different schools felt a lot more stereotyped. In book one we had Evil and God schools which were very stereotyped but I kind of liked it. In this book, we have schools separated by gender and the portrayal of the schools and the different things they learn felt a little too stereotypical. I hope that makes sense. I'm still keen to read book three but I'm not in a hurry to do so.

    I LOVED The School for Good and Evil and kept thinking what happened to Sophie and Agatha. The story follows exactly where we stopped after both girls return home. But when Agatha makes a wish, things change and the wheels of a new fairytale unfolds.Sophie hasn't changed much, still jealous, possessive, witchy, yet everyone thinks she was the princess in training and Agatha was the witch even her own mother! No one expects that Aggie has a beautiful princess and a heart of gold inside of her. Can't wait to see how the story unfolds. But I don't like the way the author writes sometimes, he makes me feel disgusted, and I don't like how things should always be black-and-white with Sophie and Agatha.

    I thought this was a step up from the first book and I'm so glad I picked it up, even after not being totally convinced by that first title.I love how the author explores the ambiguity of a certain "black and white" concepts, like good vs evil and girls vs boys. this is a children's book but it definitely tries to push you and make you think, which I can't appreciate more.a lot of people call this book both misandristic and misogynist but I can't say I agree at all. quite the contrary. this books tries to tell you that you don't have to choose between true love, a friend or anything. and that's applied to both girls and boys. life can, and should, be all of those things. and I think that's a great message.full review here:

    Its true. Sequels suck. Disappoint. Whatever.And the ARC didn't have pictures. T_TAnd butterflies- lol.AND NEW GUY IS SEXY. And belly dancing~!Review in a line- Fantastical school segregated by sex;kids getting unwanted sex-chages. UGH.So, boys vs. girls, and then some.PRE-READ(view spoiler)[UPDATE EDIT:THERE'S A COVER! AND SO GORGEOUS! *panic attack*Look at it, just look at it, its so damn...!! ;)So I just finished The School for Good and Evil, and when I was looking on-line for info on the next book I saw the cover for it.Taking a closer look at it, does anyone else think Agatha is the one with blonde hair and Sophie with black? Agatha is often described as having “bug eyes”, which the black haired one has. Also their stances and characteristic expressions don’t seem to match the characters if it is just normal Sophie and Agatha.I have a couple theories about what will happen in the second book. There’s a description for the book that says Agatha has regrets about what happened in the end of the first book, and goes back to the school. I think at some point she and Sophie attend the school with their identities switched for whatever reason. I think it’s pretty certain they will be enrolled again as they are wearing the silver uniforms that their old ones were transformed into.and i hope that they're just FRIENDS.i guess it was friendly but when someone says “I love you” and then you kiss them and they respond with “We don’t need princes”, that reads a little bit more like they’re in a romantic relationship then a friendship. But Adatha took it in a bff sorta way, but then Sophie will be like “Wait, what? No, I LOVE you”, and obviously that's when Tedros comes into the picture(literally ha-ha) coz Agatha has feelings for him, and the love tossed heroine part will come into play. I hope not.HUH, BIG REV FOR A UNPUBLISHED(POSSIBLY UNWRITTEN) BOOK...AND BTW, TEDROS IS STILL AWESOME. AND TORN. AND MINE. ANGST ANGST ANGST. HA-HA. ;) (hide spoiler)]In the stunning sequel to Soman Chainani's New York Times bestselling debut, The School for Good and Evil, Sophie and Agatha leave their Happily Ever After and return to school-but everything has changed in a way no one could have predicted.Best friends Sophie and Agatha are back in Gavaldon, living out their Happily Ever After. But all is not as happy as it seems.After Agatha-in a moment of weakness-wishes she'd chosen a different Happy Ending, the gates to the School for Good and Evil reopen and the girls return, finding the fairy tale world different than they left it. Witches and princesses unite against a new adversary. And what about the boys, led by Tedros, camped inEvil's old towers?A war is brewing but can Agatha and Sophie restore the peace? Will Tedros make Agatha's wish for a different Happy Ending come true-and at what cost? And whose heart does Agatha's belong to-her best friend or her prince?Readers are anxiously awaiting this… and until april 2014, they are internally screaming.EDIT:3.5 stars...I just completed the book. not as good as the predecessor. "Its the danger of fairy tales. Sometimes, one story opens another."A World Without Princes picks up the story begun in The School for Good and Evil. It offers a fresh take on fairy tale devices and cliches, upending the expectations most readers have about princesses and villains. A WORLD WITHOUT PRINCES finds best friends Sophie and Agatha back at home, seemingly with all their problems from the first volume of The School for Good and Evil solved. But when Agatha inadvertently wishes for a happy ending with Tedros, her handsome prince, she and Sophie find themselves whisked back to the School -- only everything about it seems to have been changed. Now the boys and the girls are separated into two institutions, without regard to who's evil and who's not. As a war between the sexes brews, Agatha and Sophie must decide whether their friendship is worth saving ahead of true love.A World Without Princes finds a new wrinkle on the premise presented in the trilogy's first volume. By switching up everything up so that the main conflict is now between the Boys and the Girls, author Soman Chainani finds more opportunities for epic confrontations, underhanded scheming, and some satirical observations about the nature of fairy tales.Unfortunately, the plot sometimes seems as if it's merely marking time until the climactic battle. Complications arise in every chapter, but they can be only minor variations on a theme. And Chainani's prose is much sloppier this time around. He never misses an opportunity to use a synonym when "said" will suffice, and he frequently makes odd verb choices. A World Without Princes has its moments of fun and excitement, but the narrative often feels rushed and repetitive.A World Without Princes explicitly plays with the conventions of familiar fairy tales and urges readers to challenge the assumptions they bring to the material, especially in regard to gender roles. Readers will recognize versions of favorite characters from folklore, but with a fresh twist.The characters in A World Without Princes spend much of their time worrying about whether they're working for Good or Evil. But the story demonstrates that people are not simply good or evil; they are human and contain a little of each(GODAMMIT YOU GUYS MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!). The important thing is to strike a balance and be true to yourself and the ones you love, without obsessing about how your behavior might be rewarded.Although she turned into a witch during her last visit to the School. Sophie struggles to be good throughout A World without Princes. Agatha remains loyal to her friend but feels attracted to Tedros at the same time. But telling the difference between Good and Evil is more difficult than anyone believes. Even in a world run by fairy tale magic, there are a lot of gray areas. And Teddy dear, indecisiveness is a fairly unattractive trait in a man, ESPECIALLY A BOY. Morons.AND THE VIOLENCE. GAG. YOU CALL THAT VIOLENCE, WHICH I CALL A BAG OF HORSE POOP. I know its middle-grade but STILL!As with traditional folktales and fairy tales, A World Without Princes contains its fair share of violence. For much of the book, the mayhem is implied rather than shown, and when there's a violent encounter, it tends be be cartoonish rather than realistic. Exceptions in this volume include some scenes in which Tedros is tortured and the climactic battle, in which a sympathetic supporting character is killed and Evil seems to triumph.And again, you guys, make up your minds. My head hurts. T_TBUT I STILL WANT TO KNOW HOW THE FAIRY TALE ENDS!Even if you don't read this, WATCH THIS. And tell me, boys or girls? Good or evil?(That's another thing I love. Its titled good and evil, not good and bad. Its amazing.)["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Ve většině případech je tomu tak, že po skvělém prvním díle už nemůže přijít nic lepšího. U téhle trilogie je tomu naopak - druhý díl byl snad ještě nadupanější než ten první, jestli je to vůbec možné. Z prvního dílu, kde se bilo dobro se zlem, jsme přešli k dívčím válkám. No vážně, tolik feminismu jsem v jedné knize jaktěživ neviděla. A Tedros v druhé polovině knihy? K nezaplacení! Proč z něj neudělat chudáka prince, kterého odmítla jeho princezna, a tak se ze samého zoufalství zamiluje do kluka... :D
