Elaine's character is similar to Meg's other female characters, but significantly more intelligent and extremely less annoying

Elaine's character is similar to Meg's other female characters, but significantly more intelligent and extremely less annoying. I cannot tell you what a relief that was.

That’s impossible, Will said flatly. I’d come crashing down from the high his kisses had sent me to. It was almost as if they’d never happened. g that had gone on in the past hour seemed like a dream, from the storm t. ell, this. It’s not impossible, I said. Your father’s gun case was broken into, and Marco is still missing. I know you didn’t take it. Who else could have? Oh, I believe Marco took the gun, Will said. But kill me? Jean-I mean, Mom-is overreacting a little.

Gave it to my sister a while back, after purchasing it from a used bookstore. I borrowed it from her, read it, and enjoyed it. I now have another family member's birthday coming up, so I purchased it for her. I hope she enjoys the gift, but I think she will! Anything by Meg Cabot is a great gift for a teenage girl who likes reading.

Elaine Harrison looks forward to the chance to forge a new identity when she tranfers high schools during her medievalist-parents' sabbatical. Little does she know that she will be returning to an old identity, as Elaine the Lily Maid of Astolat, when she meets up with a cast of Arthurian figures she comes to suspect are reincarnated from 5th-century Britain: Merlin has become a busybody teacher Mr. Morton, Lancelot the dashing blonde football player Lance, Guinevere his best friend's sweetheart, and so on. Can such a transformation be true? Elaine's musings are expressed with characteristic high school skepticism. Not.

A charming and reasonably well researched Arthurian novel for adolescents, "Avalon High" shows us what happens when King Arthur goes to high school. Recommended both for its engaging and readable adolescent narrator and for the clever, surprising, and upbeat conclusion.

I am not a student of the Arthur legend. I have seen "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" a few times. That was not helpful, for this book. If you have a decent grasp on the legend and those characters, you will grab on to the plot of Avalon High. If not, you may find yourself tapping into Knights of the Round Table background info on Wikipedia.

I liked these characters a lot. I loved the boy meets girl storyline. YA readers may really love it. Then again, the world of these high school juniors and seniors, where cell service is spotty and texting has not yet been invented, may feel a little quaint and olde tyme-y.

Elaine (named after the Lady of Shallot by her Arthurian scholar parents) is new to Avalon High, but already she finds herself suffering a crush on the star of the school, Will. But Will is dating Jennifer, and Elaine discovers there is something going on between Jennifer and Will's best friend Lance. Will is also dealing with his ogre of a father. Sound familiar? This is a fairly clever, teenage retelling and reworking (and, according to itself, continuation) of Arthurian legend. It's not as predictable as you might think, too. And the images (Elaine's penchant for floating in pools) and references are quite well done. Grade: B

Avalon high was awesome! Will, (insert girly sigh here), was positively dreamy;) I have seen Avalon High the movie many times and the book, though different from the feature, is just as interesting and captivating as the movie. Meg Cabot illustrates a unique story sure to please even the harshest critics and entertain the most restless readers, regardless of their lack of insight into medieval times or the knights of the round table. Whatever your previous knowledge of King Arthur may be, (for me that would be nothing), Avalon high is a book that will steal your breath away...... and maybe even your heart, too<3

Shallow and uneventful. Another re-imagined story of King Arthur's court that involves reincarnation within a high-school setting. Read this for a college Arthurian-genre course... Maybe teens would enjoy?
