This is definitely one of my favorite Meg Cabot books.
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.
She wasn't like hanging around waiting for the answers to present themselves to her and/or being so blind to the obvious truth.
No. Elaine figured it out almost immediate once presented with the ...more
this was seriously one of the most fun, enjoyable, and sweet stories i have ever heard. i listened to it in the car, and i found myself laughing out loud, smiling, and sometimes even gasping while listening! ellie, the main character and narrator, was very relatable, and you felt as if you were her best friend ...more
You don't have to know and enjoy the legend of King Arthur to fully appreciate AVALON HIGH, but it probably helps. Meg Cabot has taken the legend of Arthur and the main people in his lives--Merlin, the magician and guardian of young Arthur; the Lady of the Lake, who gave Arthur his magical sword, Excalibur; Guinevere, Arthur's wife and Queen; his most esteemed knight, Sir Lancelot; Mordred, Arthur's half-brother; and the elusive Elaine of Astolat, the Lady of S ...more
The only two things I dislike about that novel are that, one, for a supposedly practical person, etc, Ellie thinks too much about seeing Will when she's only just met him. Then again, it's part of the plot, so I don't know what I'm going on about that for. I don't know. I guess Cabot should have dra ...more

When Elaine and her family move to a new town, her parents, who are both medieval researchers, are on their sabbaticals and are looking forward to researching the legend of King Arthur. Elaine is looking forward to meeting new people and perhaps even reinventing herself. But neither of Elaine's goals turn out exactly right. When Elaine meets handsome and popular Will, they both feel like they already know each other. People she hardly knows, such as Will's half-brother Marc ...more
I think maybe 1 1/2 sentences of this review were actually on-topic. I win!
This book was very quick and entertaining. It's fluffy, girly brain candy. I always have trouble rating books like these because my wanna-be intelligent self is like "you're too good for these bo ...more

It was weird. It was like he smiled at me, and my lips automatically smiled back—my brain had nothing to do with it. There was no conscious decision on my part to smile back.
Someone Hot is sometimes can't be the person they appear to be- except for their hotness... that cannot be denied.

I originally was drawn to this book because of its shiny gold cover. Do not fall into the same trap that I did! This book was about some yahoos in high school who are reincarnations of King Arthur and his peeps. If you are not saying, "Wtf?" right now, then I'm wondering if you are sane.
As I said in one of my status updates, I dislike romantic plotlines. I don't mind the ...more
It isn't a very heavy book about a really serious subject, but to me it's incredibly entertaining. I love the mix between the modern world and the King Arthur legend (mind me I am a history geek) and felt I even learned some things about the legend itself.
The book is mostly aimed at teenagers and does ...more
The Princess Diaries (the first few) and All American Girl were enjoyable, but I wouldn't readily recommend them as "great books" to anyone over the age of seventeen/eighteen.
Avalon High is different. It is a high school story with a little more meat, fantasy, and wonder going for it.
The characters are well-drawn out, overall, and I'm not ashamed to admit I enjoy revisiting them with multiple re-readings.
It's kind of nice to have a ...more

Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun ...more
