Avalon High

Avalon High by Meg Cabot

Have you ever felt like you have done something before? I'm not talking about deja vu. I mean, do you ever feel like you have lived life before? That you were someone else in a past life?

Well, that is how Will Wagner feels. Even though he is the star quarterback of his high school football team, has the prettiest girl in school, and is a straight A student, he still feels like his life is missing something. The only one he can talk to about his feelings is Ellie, the new girl in town.

Ellie's parents are Medieval history professors. They are completely obsessed with King Arthur and other Medieval stories. Ellie cannot stand this time period, that is until she starts noticing weird coincidences between Will's life and King Arthur's.

Will and Arthur are both leaders. Will's best friend is name Lance (maybe Lancelot); his girlfriend is named Jennifer (a form of Guinevere), and he even has an evil stepbrother named Marco (a form of Mordred). Could Will's feelings be linked to King Arthur?

There is this secret organization called the Order of the Bear, who believe that Arthur will rise again and will finally defeat evil. Ellie of course, does not believe any of this. especially not the part about her being supposedly, Elaine, the lady of Schlott, lover of Lancelot. She can't even stand Lance!

What do all of these coincidences mean? Is Will Arthur? Will evil rise again? To find out you will have to read, Avalon High by Meg Cabot.

Just as a note, Cabot has created a Manga graphic novel off of this book.
