Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Romance
Plot (from Goodreads):
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 log 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?
Why I Read this Book: I have really been into reading Audiobooks at the gym lately, so I checked this book out online from my library.
A dash of romance, a dash of action, and a large bit of awesomeness is what makes this book worth the read. This is a fun, light read. I enjoyed the references to mythology. I also enjoyed the lightness of the read. Although I would consider this book more as middle grade rather than young adult, I still found that I easily related to the characters.
