I recognized him at once–not just because he was so tall, and there aren’t a lot of guys who are taller than me, but also because he had such a distinctive face. Not handsome, really. But attractive. And nice. And strong-looking.
The weirdest part was, he seemed to recognize me, too, even though he could only have seen me for, like, five seconds that day in the park.
“Hey,” he said, smiling, not just with his lips, but with his blue eyes, too.
Just Hey. That’s all. Hey.
But it was a Hey that made my heart flop over inside my chest.

Who is Will Wagner, and how is it that Ellie, the new girl at Avalon High, feels as if she’s known him all her life, when she’s only just met him?
A long-ago legend comes to new life in this tale of a love triangle, a medieval sword, and a totally awesome pool raft.
Avalon High seems like a typical high school, attended by typical students: There’s Lance, the jock. Jennifer, the cheerleader. And Will, senior class president, quarterback, and all-around good guy.
But not everybody at Avalon High is who they appear to be . . . not even, as new student Ellie is about to discover, herself. What part does she play in the drama that is unfolding? What if the bizarre chain of events and coincidences she has pieced together means–as with the court of King Arthur–tragedy is fast approaching Avalon High?
Worst of all, what if there’s nothing she can do about it?

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lydia | 2/15/2014

    " This was probably my favorite Meg Cabot book I've read. The whole base of the history of King Arthur was extremely interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C-chan | 2/6/2014

    " I find this to be a great modern twist on the King Arthur story. I enjoy the plot twists and overall characterizations. There are a few moments where I go "what were they thinking", but overall a very enjoyable read (and leaps and bounds better than the graphic novel sequels). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Ryan-Romo | 1/24/2014

    " It's books like this - a very teen-y take on the Arthurian legend cycle - that make me question the enduring strength of the Arthurian legend cycle. Meg Cabot does a good job incorportaing some rather little aspects (little known to those who are not Arthurian scholars) into her particular re-vision of the tale. Yes, it's a teenage version; it's King Arthur set in high school. That said, it was an enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Nguyen | 1/22/2014

    " I tottally loved this book. I think I've read it a total of .. five times. Something you would want to read on your spare time. It's an entertaining book that will catch your attention from the first to the last page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paige | 1/13/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trina | 12/12/2013

    " There is a lot of teenage vernacular in this book and I felt like the author thought I was a little bit stupid, but otherwise it was a fun read. A little feel of King Arthur in the modern world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BarkLessWagMore | 9/9/2013

    " This is a fun teen romantic fantasy mixing likable modern day characters with Arthurian lore. Sounds weird but it works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharmina | 7/13/2013

    " This is one of Meg's finer books, so amazing! The storyline seems childish and I guess it is, but Meg makes it incredible! I love this book so much and the disney adaptation of it is just AWFUL! Dont be put off by it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Piper Gibson | 1/10/2013

    " I thought it was sweet and an enjoyable read by Cabot, but a little too predictable if you know anything about the Arthur legends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula | 1/7/2013

    " It was an entertaining Young Adult book that was well written and kept my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kiersten | 11/16/2012

    " This book was cool and nerdy in a way... As I read on I thought how Meg Cabot brought the characters from to different stories into one was awesome but it seemed in my opinion to be missing something. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susanna Grant | 9/17/2012

    " I'm going through a Meg-Cabot-I-Should-Have-Read-This-When-I-Was-Younger phase. Haha, I almost typed FAYZE. Like the FAYZE. You know, Fallout Alley Youth Zone? Ugh, nevermind. ANYWAYS this book was totally predictable but it was still good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louise Armstrong | 9/29/2011

    " I loved this - In fact I read it twice. It's my favourite of all her books. Although the mix is very similar to her other books, this one has a sweet lightness about it that swept me away to another place. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anoolka | 7/4/2011

    " Nothing spectacular. Read mostly because I like Arthurian myths. This is sort of a modern take on it. It tries hard to be modern but it is very shallow and doesn't explore that much of the myths. Simplistic but readable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 6/23/2011

    " I liked this book a lot I had trouble putting it down most nights the other nights I read till I fell asleep:) "

    " the movie the disney made is nothing like the book
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jerald | 5/16/2011

    " Good theme and story
    but a unexplained plot...at first it's good then when it's already reaching the climax, it failed...A unfinished novel for me...though I enjoyed a little "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 5/14/2011

    " Berawal dari rasa bosan menikmati buku-buku "serius" akhirnya terpilihlah salah satu novel teenlit ini.
    Yang pasti ketika membacanya membuatku melayang pada masa remaja, masa cenat cenut, penuh dengan hayalan romantisme seorang remaja. "
