Best friends Sophie and Agatha navigate an enchanted school for young heroes and villains - and find themselves on opposing sides of the battle between good and evil.
Review: The School for Good and Evil" centers on two polar opposite teenage best friends who watch out for one another in a harsh, fantasy setting.
The diminutive Sophie is a blonde Cinderella-like character with aspirations of becoming a princess; she escapes the drudgery of everyday life with a harsh stepmother by communicating with woodland creatures and creating fanciful clothing.
Agatha, who is considerably taller and has wild hair, lives with her mother in a cottage in the woods where they make potions together. She also has a cat with no fur named Reaper.
However, one day, a huge bird snatches them up and flies them away to "The School for Good and Evil"; two adjacent castles connected by a bridge, is where the succeeding generation of magical young people learns to refine their abilities.
However, when the bird drops Sophie on the bad side and Agatha on the good side, they believe there must have been an error and strive to switch places. But it takes no time for their actual identities to emerge.
