Avalon High - Meg Cabot

I'm having a giveaway for this book HERE
contest is open until Midnight EST tonight (Sunday November 14)



Summary:

Avalon High, I was starting to think, might not be so bad after all.
Maybe it's not where Ellie wants to be, but if you have to start at a new school, Avalon High is typical enough: There's Lance, the jock. Jennifer, the cheerleader. And Will, senior class president, quarterback, and all-around good guy.
But not everyone at Avalon High is who they appear to be . . . not even, as Ellie is about to discover, herself. As a bizarre drama begins to unfold, Ellie has to wonder, what part does she play in all this? Do the coincidences she's piecing together really mean—as in King Arthur's court—that tragedy is fast approaching for her new friends?
Ellie doesn't know if she can do anything to stop the coming trouble. But somehow, she knows she has to try.


Review:

This was a really cute read.  I loved the integration of the King Arthur mythology within the story.  I've always been a fan of the King Arthur/Sword in the Stone myth, so it was really fun to see it set in the modern day.  I also really liked that it wasn't just a modern story of the King Arthur myth, but a story of fate.  It was the destiny of King Arthur to rise again, and Ellie has to stop Will (the new Arthur) from being killed before he comes to power.

Ellie's a really cool character too.  She's a sweet girl, but she also stands up for herself and for her friends.  I liked that she really didn't believe in the myth, and wasn't willing to play her part in it as instructed.

As always, Meg Cabot's writing is fun and fresh. 

Really fun read.  Can't wait to see the new movie.
