The School for Good and Evil #2: A World without Princes

We rated this book:


This is a book about Agatha and Sophie and their unwanted return to the School for Good and Evil. They made a wish that sent them back to the school, and while they’re there, they must once again make their way through the strange world and hopefully find a happily ever after. They have been friends, but can they really trust each other?

Maybe it’s that I didn’t read the first story, but a lot of this book was hard to follow. It was especially confusing to try and figure out just who the bad guy is. Also, I’m pretty nice, so the long descriptions of torture were so not my thing. Gross! It is a unique story—definitely a different way to approach fairytales, but there were still some places that were maybe a bit cliché and could be improved. I’m more of a happily-ever-after girl, so this wasn’t exactly my favorite story ever. Maybe readers that aren’t so bothered by some of the evil (including evil butterflies!), betrayals, torture, and other bad things would enjoy it more than me. It was a pretty interesting story, just not my cup of tea.
