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.
This one was kind of a disappointment. I was hoping (especially after reading the blurb) that this would be different than Meg Cabot's usual style; maybe a bit deeper with all the mythology. No. Just no. In true Meg Cabot fashion, it was a chick-lit through and through. Instead of the intense, thrilling novel I was expecting, I got fluff. Just fluff. Maybe I set my expectations too high, but knowing the story of King Arthur, this novel didn't cut it for me. 3/10?
