First Pages: The School for Good and Evil
Thoughts on The School for Good and Evil First Lines: Okay, what? Somehow I've never picked up these books and actually looked inside even though Mini Me loves this series. Now that I see how it starts out, I can see why. Immediately I have SO many questions--the first of which is WHY does Sophie want to be kidnapped?! Intrigue, check. Mystery, check. Page-turner, check. Add in the fact that this is a fantasy book with female main characters and I'm sold.
I also like the cover illustration and the illustrations within. Why does this house look like it's built on gravestones? So many questions that I NEED to have answered.

What is your favorite novel from when you were a kid with a female protagonist? Let me know in the comments. If I have to answer without really thinking about it, I'd say that I loved the Little House series when I was growing up.
