School is just around the corner, and though our world looks completely different this year, it’s a time to celebrate learning new things. So many of us have switched to online learning and craving that classroom, which is why this curious wannabe fae wants to know:
What is a book you enjoyed that takes place at a school?
Whenever I think about school books, I think of David Levithan’s The Realm of Possibility. This book features 20 different teens and their experiences in high school. I believe every person will find a character that they relate to in this book, and I love that the majority of this book takes place in their high school. Want to read my review? Click here.
Novice Dragoneer by E.E. Knight also sprang to mind when I wrote this prompt. This book read like a biography of a dragoneer, and I loved that we got to watch Ileth grow into herself throughout her entire time at the academy. The world that E.E. Knight created was extremely detailed, and I enjoyed seeing the training and schooling that all the dragoneers went through. Want to read my review? Click here.
I would also be doing a disservice by not mentioning Bob Proehl’s The Nobody People. This book takes place in a school that has been created for extraordinary human beings. Be warned, this book is extremely dark (and 2020 might not be the right year to read it), but it’s incredible. Want to read my review? Click here!
So now that you know my answer, what is a book you enjoyed that takes place at a school?

Combining two FaeFriday topics, some of my favorite queer school stories are: Annie On My Mind, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, George, What We Left Behind, Symptoms of Being Human, and Carry On — that last one’s, in fact, a Fae-related queer school story (honestly, I’d love a story all about Trixie the pixie and her girlfriend)!
I really need to read George! I have heard such amazing things about it!
It really is sweet, and shows how even initially resistant characters are able to learn more and open their minds wider.
