"The Storybook of Legends" is the first book in the Ever After High series by the author Shannon Hale. Another series is to be released by Suzanne Selfors. 


It's Legacy year at Ever After High, and the students, from their very special individual characteristics and destinies, come together again. Apple White, the confident future Queen of Ever After, decides to follow in the footsteps of her mother, Snow White, who is faithful for Apple. However, Raven Queen, the future super villain of Ever After, doesn't want to follow in her mother's footsteps. Together with her friends who truly do believe in her dreams, they discover the secrets of the school. 


At Ever After High, an enchanting boarding school, the children of fairytale legends prepare themselves to fulfill their destinies as the next generation of Snow Whites, Prince Charmings and Evil Queens...whether they want to or not. Each year on Legacy Day, students sign the Storybook of Legends to seal their scripted fates. For generations, the Village of Book End has whispered that refusing to sign means The End-both for a story and for a life. As the daughter of The Evil Queen, Raven Queen's destiny is to follow in her mother's wicked footsteps, but evil is so not Raven's style. She's starting to wonder, what if she rewrote her own story? The royal Apple White, daughter of the Fairest of Them All, has a happy ever after planned for herself, but it depends upon Raven feeding her a poison apple in their future.

What if Raven doesn't sign the Storybook of Legends? It could mean a happily never after for them both.
