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
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
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

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

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.

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
The amazing book Avalon High was written by the famous author Meg Cabot. The story takes place at school “Avalon High” and in the park, next to Ellie’s house. The characters brought the story to life. The protagonists in this novel are Ellie, Will, Jennifer, Lance, and Mr. Morton. The only antagonist in this story is Marco Will’s step ...more
Mhhh…ich finde zwar das der englische Titel „Avalon High“ besser passt, als die Tochter von Avalon, aber das Cover ist nicht gerade einfallsreich. Ebenso wenig wie das deutsche Cover. Ich würd mal sagen, da haben beide Verlage versagt…zumindest ein Bild einer Schule hätte es schon sein dürfen, oder etwa nicht? Da spielt die Geschichte schließlich zu, öhm 90%?

I have always been a huge fan of Meg Cabot. From The Princess Diaries to Awaken Trilogy to now Avalon High. Avalon High is another favorite written by Meg Cabot.
Avalon High is a cleverly written Arthurian retelling of the King Arthur legends. I was surprised to find out that Avalon High isn't a popular book of Meg Cabot. Clearly, Avalon High is one of those hidden gem (books) of the Young Adult book world.

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
