Review: Avalon High

Avalon High by Meg Cabot

Published 01 July 2007
Paperback 288 pages
ISBN: 0060755881
Source: Bought at Bookdepository for $8.09

"To newcomer Ellie, Avalon High seems like a typical American high school, complete with jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, and even the obligatory senior class president, quarterback, and all-around good guy. But it doesn't take Ellie long to suspect that something weird is going on beneath the glossy surface of this tranquil hall of learning. As she pieces together the meaning of this unfolding drama, she begins to recognize some haunting Arthurian echoes, causing her to worry that she has become just a pawn in mythic history. A powerful novel by the author of The Princess Diaries."



This was one of those feel good, easy to read, fast paced young adult novels that you should definitely read when looking for something light and fun.

Don't expect a in-depth Arthurian novel, but rather a entertaining and "clean" read. I loved the whole re-incarnate characters thing and I also really enjoyed Ellie's parents.

I also like when a twist happens and I didn't see it coming! I'll watch the Disney Movie although I hear its nothing like the book.

I can't say much more, as its not really a novel that can be discussed to no end, but I suggest you read it if this sounds like your type of thing :)

"Kings don't sneak."
Meg Cabot (Avalon High)

Be Warned! I here the Disney movie and the book are completely different! But here it is:

None :(

I read this and thought it was a quick amusing read. Quite liked it.

The film is totally different and I didn't like it at all. Felt very let down by it. If you watch it let me know what you think. :D

I agree. This is a great, light read, and even though it wasn't deep, I liked the ties to the Arthurian legends. Great stuff.

Sounds cool... finding a spot for it on my challenge :)

You can use it for Arthurian legend and the one with a flag on the cover :)
