Ellie Harrison isn’t thrilled with leaving St. Paul, Minnesota, and moving to a new state, and starting a new school. Both of her parents are professors, and her father has dragged their family closer to D.C so that he can get a better look at a sword he is researching. Then Ellie meets Will, the most interesting and good-looking boy she’s ever seen, but he has a girlfriend, the very lovely Jennifer, so she decides to just be his friend.
As time goes on, Ellie realizes that there are some very strange similarities between life at Avalon High and the legend of King Author. The events that unfold such as one of the teachers going crazy and Jennifer being in love with Will’s best friend, Lance, start to add up to one bizarre scenario. Could Will be the reincarnation of King Arthur, and could something really bad be working its way up towards the halls of Avalon High?
This book is entertaining because it tells the story of King Arthur, but does it in a different way. It also has a lot of surprises in it where you don’t know what is going to happen next.
This book is educational because it talks about different things that actually occurred in the real story of King Arthur and his court.
