Avalon High See a Problem? VideoFilm Francais Avalon High 2010 Fantastique
It had very silly elements, but as a tame "romance" I think it worked well. My 8 year old was very interested in having me turn it on every time we went on a car trip, while my wife sort of rolled her eyes impatiently waiting for it to finally end.
I think that is a good indication of what age group this book is good for. Hannah No. The movie changed the main character's name. Also, to who King Arthur is.

With the confinement situation here in Quebec, I suddenly had time to read a book that I never thought I'd get to one day. It's an uncertain situation but one thing I am certain about is that I'm going to try to make the most of it by reading old books that were a sensation once upon a time as well as by re-reading favourites, of course.
This one was a quick and fun, although cheesy and somewhat predictable, read. View 1 comment. Shelves: ya-lit , urban-fantasy. Will Wagner seems to like spending time with her This is more than a bit surprising because Will is handsome, popular and also happens to be dating the beautiful cheerleader, Jennifer Gold.
Little does Ellie know that when Will says something along the lines of "I feel we have met before in a different lifetime", it is more than just a cheesy pick-up line.
The Legend of Camelot lives on and odd parallels occur between the famed medieval king's entourage and Ellie's current school crowd. But where there's a supposedly reincarnated king, there is also a resurrected villain.
As the dark forces rise to crush King Arthur once more, Ellie finds her pragmatic self plunged into fantastical situations, devious plots and fatal showdowns.
Ellie is a take-charge heroine and that's always a plus for me. I have always been fascinated by the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and this is a cute YA gateway into his world.

Shelves: absolute-crap , summer-reading. I wasn't that impressed. I get frustrated with books that try extremely hard to prove they are hip and modern.
While dealing with subject matter from Arthurian legend, I had hoped this would be an interesting retelling while holding the charm of the original stories.
Not so much. That's pretty much all I can say about it. View all 7 comments. Feb 04, Tatiana marked it as dnf Shelves: , book-club , ya.
I might have liked it 5 years ago, but at this point of my YA journey, I've completely outgrown Meg Cabot's books. Jan 28, Hajy rated it really liked it.
View 2 comments. Oh, that was so much fun! I loved the parallels in the story to King Arthur's tale! This is definitely one of my favorite Meg Cabot books.
Elaine's character is similar to Meg's other female characters, but significantly more intelligent and extremely less annoying. I cannot tell you what a relief that was.
Elaine figured it out almost immediate once presented with the Oh, that was so much fun! Elaine figured it out almost immediate once presented with the clues!
But she still connected the dots quickly! The romance was so cute! William Wagner was so adorable and gentlemanly :D The other characters were great too except Marco.
Even "the cheerleader" wasn't despicable, which was a nice change! I love these kinds of books! The stories that are a modern take on old classic tales such as Beowulf, King Arthur, the Trojan War, and such with direct connections to said tale!

Lame review. View all 38 comments. Feb 24, Lisa Schensted added it. Sep 12, Liz rated it liked it Shelves: , ya. Wow, so many people think that this book was terrible.
Come on, what did you think it was going to be, total in-depth dissection? I personally enjoyed it.
It was laid-back whilst still being exciting. The only two things I dislike about that novel are that, one, for a supposedly practical person, etc, Ellie thinks too much about seeing Will when she's only just met him.
Then again, it's part of the plot, so I don't know what I'm going on about that for. I don't know. I guess Cabot should have dra Wow, so many people think that this book was terrible.
I guess Cabot should have drawn more attention to it being out of character. Like, she did, but I don't feel that was enough.
And the second thing is, the deepest thing that Ellie thinks about is snake protection, while Will's all into saving the world from evil and being deep.
How long is that relationship gonna last? Be reasonable. The twist with Ellie's real 'persona' was pretty cool, even though I kind of had it half-figured out by the end.
I liked the way everything all sort of fit in neatly without being all "Hey! Look at me! I'm convenient!
As if he'd just give up after that! That's why it lost a star. And I liked how I didn't agree with Ellie all the time. She was an actual character.
Makes a refreshing change from Bella Swan, and I enjoyed the story all the more for that. Meg Cabot may write for the teen girl population, and her subject matter may range from the frivolous to the downright weird Airhead , I'm looking at you , but she can definitely write characters with personalities and an actual plot.
Overall, a light take on King Arthur, and an enjoyable one. Sep 20, E. I don't know how to talk about it without them, but also don't want to hide the whole review because of them.
You've been warned. Review: This was an instance when I saw the movie long before reading the book. Back when Disney Channel put out the adaptation for this book, I liked it a lot up till the end when the big twist seemed to me to come out of nowhe Note: if you know nothing about this book and want to continue knowing nothing about this book until you read it, this review has SPOILERS.
Back when Disney Channel put out the adaptation for this book, I liked it a lot up till the end when the big twist seemed to me to come out of nowhere and I was so mad about it I haven't watched it since.
Well, it took me nine years to check out the book to see how it differed, but finally, here we are. I did enjoy it for the most part, but it was a mixed bag.
At first I wasn't sure if I even liked the main character, Ellie. She was a little too typical-teenager-whiny right at the very beginning, but soon she started to be different enough that she grew on me.
While she was embarrassed by her parents' quirks as many teens are it was refreshing that she had a mostly healthy relationship with them nevertheless.
I actually started being more annoyed with her parents wanting her to not spend so much time floating on their pool and do "normal" teenage things instead.
Like, you'd really rather she spend her after-school time with kids who could bully her or peer-pressure her than read a book in the pool?
This seems to pop up most often in contemporary YA fiction where the parents want their teen to stop doing their quirky thing and be more like other teens, and I just don't get it.
Last I checked, most real life parents are a lot more worried about their teens picking up bad habits from their peers and losing themselves by trying too hard to fit in with a certain crowd, not worried that they aren't enough like their peers.
I liked that the foreshadowing for who Ellie was supposed to be in the book was stronger in my opinion than for her movie equivalent.
I'm sorry movie makers, but if you have to show flashbacks to all the supposedly foreshadowing things in order to prove that you did foreshadow, you might not have done a good enough job.
Whereas the twist of who the main character of the movie version was a total shock for me, I was easily able to identify who she was going to be in the book, in spite of some of the characters getting it wrong.
As for other characters, I liked Will from the beginning. It was nice that he was a decent, upstanding kid with healthy aspirations for the future and not the brooding bad boy.
It was also nice that Ellie didn't have to change her quirky, funny ways in spite of her best friend's suggestions for Will to like and fall in love with her.
In fact, he even tried to fix it, and though it didn't work, I appreciate that he tried. Some things I didn't like: The fact that the twist involved reincarnation.
I'm a Christian and don't believe in reincarnation and don't really like seeing it in stories aimed at kids or teens. On the plus side, the author played it in a way that if you wanted to believe that all the similarities to King Arthur's story and the supposedly magical occurrences were coincidence you could.
I mean, it would be a pretty big coincidence, and there was some stuff that is hard to explain away without the presence of magic, but having Ellie still doubting by the end that she and the others were supposedly reincarnations of people from mythical history invites the reader to doubt it as well if they want to.
Even still, it's not my favorite thing to have in a story. I also didn't care that much about any of the characters besides Ellie and Will.
Like, I both didn't like them and didn't care about them. Marco was a complete wackadoo with no redeemable qualities, Lance had some redeemable qualities, but I still had no real reason to care about him, Jennifer came off as a one-dimensional, cool cheerleader bubble head who I was annoyed with more often than not.
Also, one of the teachers being a member of a secret sauce organization that shadows kids they think might be King Arthur reincarnated was just kind of I also didn't get until it was pointed out that he was supposed to be the equivalent of Merlin.
I think Disney made a good choice putting a kid in that role in the movie instead. Then there were these girls Ellie hung out with at a school pep rally and they got dialog and Ellie was kind of friends with them, but I can't even remember their names because they just I seriously only remember they were in the story at all because one of them made a mildly crass comment that I had to note for my content section.
Speaking of content, that was something about the Disney movie that I liked better than the book. The book has that edge to teenage behavior that, while it could have been much worse, still irritates me.
Some teens do act like that, but I don't feel that every story featuring teens has to have the edgy content in order to be "realistic".
The nice thing about fiction is sometimes you can show things how they could be instead of how they are. Disney at least did what they usually do and took some of that edge away to make the movie friendlier for a younger audience.
Also speaking of content, in this day and age where school shootings are a far too common occurrence, the part where we learn that Marco has stolen his father's gun and gone to find Will and kill him is a little extra disturbing.
I know this book was written before that kind of thing started being so common, but it's something some readers sensitive to such things might want to be aware of.
On a related subject, I also felt Marco was defeated a little too easily? Like, he's pointing the gun at Will and Ellie and then Will gets the sword and just commands him to drop the gun and he just It's one of those things that was difficult to explain without the presence of magic in any form because otherwise, the kid was stinkin' nuts and shouldn't have been intimidated by Will holding a sword too far away from him to do anything.
I'm not sure what I would have preferred to happen, but it just wasn't that satisfying a defeat to me. Overall, I'm struggling how to rate this book.
I was hoping to like it resoundingly better than the movie, but I actually didn't. I didn't dislike it, but there were still just as many disappointments with it as with the movie.
In fact, I kind of want to rewatch the movie now and see if I might actually like it better than the book because I'm starting to understand why Disney made a lot of the changes they made, and I can already tell you even without a rewatch that I liked more of the characters in the movie than in the book.
I think I'm going with 3 stars for the book for didn't-love-it-didn't-hate-it. It wasn't terrible, and the content wasn't as bad as I've found in some contemporary secular YA, but I was hoping to like it more than I did.
Content Advisory: Language: Christ's name in vain 3 times. God's name in vain five times. Ellie says Marco told Will to do something she wasn't sure was anatomically possible.
Will says "something unkinglike" about a certain group. A mention or two that someone swore, without the word being detailed. Sexual: Boys are called hot.
Ellie frequently notices this boy's good looks. Mention of someone not wanting to stick their tongue in someone's mouth. Several instances of wanting to kiss someone and wondering what it would be like to do so.
Ellie catches a teenage couple making out on a bed but there's no description. A character states that there's sexual tension between a couple.
It's discovered that a girl is cheating on her boyfriend with her boyfriend's best friend and this is portrayed as very hurtful to everyone involved.
Two semi-passionate kisses between Ellie and her love interest are somewhat described in terms of intense feelings, burning in a good way, and tingles.
A couple other kisses are less described but still implied as passionate and long. His parents lied about her identity because his mother cheated on his father, having a son with another man, but then that man died and in order to save face, she and Will's father remarried under the guise that she was another woman.
Will comes to the kid's rescue. A nasty boy grabs El's arm roughly and later shoves her out of his way hard enough that she falls. She falls on a couch and is unhurt.
The rumor turns out to be true. See spoiler in sexual content section to see the reason he did this. Marco doesn't seem to care that the person's life was in danger.
There's a rumor that Marco attempted to kill a teacher at school. Whether he was really trying to kill the teacher is questioned, but it's true that he attacked the man.
Later, view spoiler [ Marco steals his fathers gun and goes searching for Will, apparently with the intention of shooting and killing him. Marco states that he was going to shoot Ellie in the head first and make Will watch.
While he does point the gun at both teens, he never gets the chance to fire any shots. Morton also is a member of an ancient order that believes that evil will repeatedly try to take over the world and King Arthur and associates will be repeatedly reincarnated in order to either defeat it or in the worst case scenarios, overcome by it.
Multiple things happen in the story that could convince the reader that this was what was going on. The things that happen to them are indeed very similar to what happened with those characters in mythic history with some differences and some of these things could be considered magical, including a huge storm that seems to try to stop Ellie from getting to and helping Will during a time of crisis, and then the storm clears once Will gets his hands on the equivalent of Excalibur.
Morton also thinks that Marco was being controlled by the evil and that the evil left him once Will "defeated" him by getting the sword.
For example, the huge storm could have just been a normal huge storm, and it could have been coincidence that it cleared when it did, etc.
However, it should be noted that Morton and Ellie's parents continue to believe that it really was reincarnation.
Other: Ellie is apparently taller than average for a teenage girl 5'8" and has some self-consciousness and self-confidence issues because of that.
She repeatedly thinks a cute boy couldn't be falling in love with her because boys just aren't attracted to girls like her in that way.
She calls herself a giraffe once. Marco says something unkind about another boy's weight the boy doesn't hear this and is unkind to pretty much everyone he encounters.
Marco multiple times does things to intentionally hurt people, both emotionally and physically. Will's relationship with his father isn't great because his father tends to force his own desires on Will's life.
Near the end of the story when Will view spoiler [ finally stands up to his father and expresses that he doesn't want to go to military school, Will's father kicks him out of the house.

When Elaine meets handsome and popular Will, they both feel like they already know each other. People she hardly knows, such as Will's half-brother Marc [NOTE: Spoilers ahead] When Elaine and her family move to a new town, her parents, who are both medieval researchers, are on their sabbaticals and are looking forward to researching the legend of King Arthur.
People she hardly knows, such as Will's half-brother Marco and one of Elaine's teachers, start talking to her as if she were her namesake, the Lily Maid of Astolat who loved Sir Lancelot.
And as odd things begin to happen at Avalon High and the age-old legend of King Arthur seems to start repeating itself among Elaine and her new friends, Elaine will need to help Will in what may become a struggle for his life—and for the world's future.
Sounds interesting and promising, right? Well, that's only because I gave you a glimpse in the first paragraph of what was going to happen. The actual pacing of this novel was so slow and clunky that, even though major clue-dropping begins even from the outset about the connections between Elaine's life and Arthurian legend, the actual plot does not seem to begin until the novel is more than halfway over.
It probably hadn't helped that I'd looked up the plot summary on Wikipedia beforehand, to decide if I was going to read this or a different Cabot novel for my YA Lit.
Not here with Avalon High , though. Its exposition grinds on painfully slowly. Morton's apartment" scene that I found myself feeling any real interest for the novel, and I don't think it was until the scene with Marco at the school that I even really cared what happened next.
The simple question that rules the first part of the book, "does the girl get her man? Overall, Cabot writes with a pretty convincing teenager's voice.
That's not to say that this convincing voice was always interesting , of course—sometimes the action of the book was broken up by inane little catologues of insignificant actions on Elaine's part e.
Then I'd go inside and eat lunch [includes unimportant details about lunch]. Then I'd go back out to the pool again. Obviously, as a guy, I'm not this book's intended audience, and that accounts for most of the distaste I felt as I read it.
Despite that, I think there are some things in the book that will bug discriminating female readers, as well. For instance, Will's eyes--how many times do they have to sparkle, or look deep or piercing or whatever?
Can't Elaine ever look Will in the eyes without having to tack on two or three adjectives to describe how they look? I should have counted how many times Cabot describes Will's eyes, and how many times those descriptions include the adjectives and metaphors that quickly became overused and bothersome to me.
Allie Pennington Britt Robertson is ecstatic when her parents tell her she now will be attending Avalon High until she graduates. She can finally join the track team, make new friends and be a normal high school student.
But shortly after arriving, Allie discovers that something strange may be afoot. While researching a term paper on King Arthur's legacy, she begins to notice some interesting parallels between the past and the present, from handsome quarterback Will Gregg Sulkin , his cheerleader girlfriend, Jen Molly Quinn and their best friend, Lance Chris Tavarez , to Will's brooding stepbrother, Marco Devon Graye , a quirky kid named Miles Joey Pollari and football players who act like knights of the Round Table.
The deeper Allie searches, the more convinced she is that her school is a contemporary Camelot, and it's up to her to solve the mystery of Avalon High before notorious traitor Mordred wins again.
