Opening Lines: “You are so lucky.”
Trust my best friend Nancy to see things that way. Nancy is what you would call an optimist.
Not that I’m a pessimist, or anything. I’m just . . . practical. At least according to Nancy.
Apparantly, I’m also lucky.

Memorable Quote: “Kings don’t sneak.”

Favorite Character: Elle, Will

Summary:

Avalon High, I was starting to think, might not be so bad after all.

Maybe it’s not where Ellie wants to be, but if you have to start at a new school, Avalon High is typical enough: There’s Lance, the jock. Jennifer, the cheerleader. And Will, senior class president, quarterback, and all-around good guy.

But not everyone at Avalon High is who they appear to be . . . not even, as Ellie is about to discover, herself. As a bizarre drama begins to unfold, Ellie has to wonder, what part does she play in all this? Do the coincidences she’s piecing together really mean—as in King Arthur’s court—that tragedy is fast approaching for her new friends?

Ellie doesn’t know if she can do anything to stop the coming trouble. But somehow, she knows she has to try.

Review:

I love Meg Cabot! Once again, I flew through one of her books. This was a really quick read for me, with a surprising twist. My edition that I borrowed from the library has practically no summary on it, so reading along with no expectations was a fun change. I loved the characters, and how everything fit together perfectly.

Elle is a funny little character that likes to keep to herself and would rather float alone in her pool then go to the mall and try to make new friends.

I’d recommend this to any fan of Meg Cabot, chick lit, or young adult books.
