When Agatha wishes she'd chosen a different Happy Ending, she accidentally reopens the gates to the School for Good and Evil. But when the girls return, they notice that the world they knew has changed. Witches and princesses reside at the School for Girls, where they've been inspired to live a life without princes, while Tedros and the boys are camping in Evil's old towers. A war is brewing between the schools, but can Agatha and Sophie restore peace? Can Sophie stay good with Tedros on the hunt? And whose heart does Agatha's belong to -- her best friend or her prince?



This book takes a new, fascinating twist on fairy tales—an epic sequel to The School for Good and Evil, one of our family favorites. From the looming halls of the Evil school to the hidden terrors of the vast Blue Forest, a thrilling, wild adventure is sure to appear. You can find out the next episode of not-quite-so-happily-ever-after in this wild, fast-paced quest to reunite the schools and end the wars between girls and boys, good and evil. I found this book fascinating, fantastic, clever, and thrilling as Agatha and Sophie continue a dangerous adventure through their fairy tale.
When Agatha and Sophie return to the School for Good and Evil, they learn that wishes have changed the schools to all girls and all boys. What happens when you eliminate princes from the fairy tales and boys are left without their princesses?
