Back to School Countdown, #7

Back to School Countdown, Book #7
Avalon High
by Meg Cabot

Making number 7 on the list is a book by one of my absolute favorite authors ever, Meg Cabot. But there's definitely a big difference between Avalon High and the Princess Diaries. Because while there are no fat cats and tiaras in this novel, Meg managed to entertain me all the same.

This wasn't my favorite of hers, but I love the mix between fluffy romance and nail-biting suspense, and also the interesting take on history and King Arthur.

So where does the school come in? Well, in the title: Avalon High School is where Ellie (the main character) starts to go to school, in the beginning of the novel. The school is where she first starts to realize a strange pattern between some of the students, and the similarities between her friends and people she knows only from her history books.

So, all in all, this book was cute and fun, and definitely something to read if you want reassurance that your shcool is, in fact, normal.
