I've had my eye on this novel for awhile. Between the cover and concept, I fell in love with it. Well, the book trailer did not disappoint! I love the artsy style. When it comes to book trailers, these illustrative ones are my favorite.
kidnappings happened two hundred years before. Some years it was two
boys taken, some years two girls, sometimes one of each. But if at first
the choices seemed random, soon the pattern became clear. One was
always beautiful and good, the child every parent wanted as their own.
The other was homely and odd, an outcast from birth. An opposing pair,
plucked from youth and spirited away.
This 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.
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
And now for the awesome trailer! If you've read the novel, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the trailer. Does it do it justice?
