"You are so lucky."||Trust my best friend Nancy to see things that way. Nancy is what you would call an optimist. (from the first line)
Having moved to Annapolis, Maryland, with her medievalist parents, high school junior Ellie enrolls at Avalon High School where several students may or may not be reincarnations of King Arthur and his court. Reprint. *Author: Cabot, Meg *Publication Date: 2007/07/01 *Number of Pages: 304 *Binding Type: Paperback *Grade Level: 7-9 *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 5.00 *Height: 8.00
From the Publisher:

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.

Annotation:
Bestselling young-adult author Meg Cabot's inventive take on the King Arthur legend involves an intense teen crush, a series of disturbing coincidences, and a creepy teacher. Forced to spend a sabbatical year in Maryland with her annoying medievalist professor parents, tall, geeky Ellie Harrison is resigned to being the new girl. But she doesn't count on becoming friends with A. William Wagner, a very gorgeous, very popular football star known as Will. But Will is struggling with his father's acceptance and his own strange, unnameable feelings. At the same time, Ellie must contend with Jenny, his cheerleader girlfriend; Lance, his goon-like best friend; and Marco, his nasty stepbrother. After an eventful party, it seems that they might all be pawns in a fate decided centuries ago.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"The prose and story gallop along with a style that will easily appeal to fans of both fantasy and realistic fiction alike. Very nicely done." 12/01/2005

Publishers Weekly
"Readers will be swept up in the fantasy framework...There is plenty of suspense here to hold their attention, as they, like Ellie, try to fit together all the pieces." 1/23/2006
