About this book

Book Summary

Avalon High seems like a typical high school, attended by typical students: There's Lance, the jock. Jennifer, the cheerleader. And Will, senior class president, quarterback, and all-around good guy.

But not everybody at Avalon High is who they appear to be ... not even, as new student Ellie is about to discover, herself. What part does she play in the drama that is unfolding? What if the bizarre chain of events and coincidences she has pieced together means -- as with the court of King Arthur -- tragedy is fast approaching Avalon High?

Media Reviews

"This story has suspense, although it is somewhat predictable, and offers much of Cabot's usual humorous narrative. " - VOYA

"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." - Kirkus Reviews
