Avalon High

Avalon High is one of my favorite YA books. I listened to the audio book and enjoyed it so much I exercised longer and did chores just so I could listen to it. I don't think there's much more I can say about liking a book than it made me want to exercise and clean.

Avalon High is a modern day retelling of King Arthur and Camelot. Ellie, the main character, moves to town and is the new student at Avalon High. Will, the dreamy QB, shows interest in her. Their friendship/romance begins as Ellie starts to wonder about the odd things that happen. The Arthurian legend plays out between Ellie, Will, their friends and families.

There's a three book graphic novel series that picks up after the end of Avalon High. I read the first one, but wasn't a fan. I like graphic novels, so it wasn't that, rather the plot was bleh. It was disappointing since I loved Avalon High so much.


  1. I love Meg Cabot, but I haven't read this one yet. It's on my classroom library shelf...I'll have to take it home one weekend.

  2. Like Jess, I haven't read this one yet either...I had heard of it but didn't really know what it is about - sounds very cute and interesting. I will have to read it soon.
