This story is about 2 girls called Sophie and Agatha. They both live in a village called Gavaldon. Sophie is sweet and adores her face and says that she can’t live without cucumbers. Agatha on the other hand lives by a graveyard and has a strange cat called Reeper. Every 4 years, the school master kidnaps two children to go to his school. Are Agatha and Sophie the chosen ones? 
This book is such a page turner. I had to ask my mum to buy me the handbook.

I loved the school for good and evil! I liked Agatha because she’s really funny and I also like Dot because she’s always cheerful even though she’s a villain, there was an illustration at the start of every chapter. It’s more of an adventure book with a lot of magic in. I loved this because I loved Harry Potter and this is a bit like it.
