I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed reading this book. First of all, I loved the King Arthur tale that was woven into this story. How Will is really reincarnated as King Arthur and Ellie is well I won't tell you that, it would ruin everything. The secrets behind the characters in this story is amazing. I absolutely love how Meg Cabot built this story keeping the tale of King Arthur true and the story's pace going well along with it too. It just matched perfectly, and instead of giving the story a sad or some other type of ending. She gave a good one and one that went well with the story too.
Will keeps true to personality of King Arthur. He is a valedictorian, Quarterback of the football team, and well loved by his family and peers. He lives the perfect life. Not only that, he is extremely kind and thoughtful, but Will's life is turned upside when Ellie enters Avalon High. He finds himself being able to talk to Ellie more often than he ever did. He is able to see how he doesn't want to do the things his father is wanting him to do. He is able to look more closely at life and deal with his problems well too. Will finds himself unable to keep away from Ellie. He is able to talk to her about things he can't share with others. Will is unlike the others, yet so much like them that its scary.
I cannot begin to tell you how much you should read this book now. This is one book that you will finish in a day if you love romantic, medieval mixed with the modern world type of stories. Also the film doesn't even hold a grain against the book. The book is 101% better than the movie. Avalon High is going to give you a high that will leave you floating on top of cloud nine.
