Summary: Ellie Harrison just moved to a new school in Annapolis called Avalon High. Her parents are freak professors that specialize in medieval times, so Ellie isn’t too thrilled about attending a school where their mascot is the Excaliburs (a.k.a. King Arthur’s legendary sword). After spending some time at her new school she begins to notice the odd similarities Avalon High has with the story of King Arthur. The modern King Arthur twist isn’t only entertaining, but educational as well.
Review: I give this book a 10 out of 10. My grandparents gave me this book for Christmas when I was in 6th grade. I’ve read it probably 6 times since and it’s still one of my favorite books. This is one of those books that you just can’t put down. When I told my friend about it, she read the whole thing in a day! When I heard they were making a movie about it, I was so excited and could not wait to see it. (FYI, the book is way better!) I love the characters in this book because they are so easy to relate to. This book is great for practically anybody. It has elements of romance, action, and myth, and it’s even educational and teaches a lot about the King Arthur legend. I would recommend this book to any girl that’s able to read. The reading level is written for young teens, but I’m in my late teens and I still love to read it because every time I read it, it’s just as interesting as the first time, and personally, I think that’s what makes a great book.
