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?
Worst of all, what if there’s nothing she can do about it?

This New York Times bestselling hit from Meg Cabot mixes the wit of the Princess Diaries with a supernatural twist on the Arthurian legend.
Ellie’s thrilled to meet Will, the star football player whose popularity at her new school is almost legendary. Yet as she gets to know Will better, Ellie starts to uncover some strange things about him. And the school. And even herself. Ellie doesn’t think much of déjà vu, but she just can’t shake the haunting feeling that, somehow, this has all happened before…
A long-ago legend comes to new life in this tale of a love triangle, a medieval sword, and a totally awesome pool raft in this stand-alone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Princess Diaries.
Being a new student at Avalon High has been exciting for Ellie, to say the least—she’s an honor student, a star on the track team, and, oh yeah, dating the super-hot class president, Will. Who also happens to be the alleged reincarnation of King Arthur.
Ellie couldn’t be happier to have Will in her life, but she’s also worried that his estrangement from his parents is tearing him apart. To make matters worse, Will’s doubt that he really is King Arthur could prevent the Merlin Prophecy—an age of enlightenment—from occurring. Can Ellie convince Will to believe in something that even she isn’t sure about? And more importantly, can she get him to give his parents another chance?
With all the mythology and mysticism of avalon high, Meg Cabot’s very first manga is indeed a tale for the ages.
AVALON HIGH Coronation Volume 2: Homecoming
Will’s dangerous brother, Marco, has been released for good behavior, and it seems as if he’s turned over a new leaf.
But Ellie isn’t sure she trusts him yet, especially when she’s having nightmares about him every night.
Meanwhile, Mr. Morton is still convinced that Ellie’s boyfriend, Will, is the reincarnation of King Arthur and according to the Merlin Prophecy, if Ellie doesn’t help Will believe this, too, the world is going to end�this Friday, the night of the Hunter’s Moon…and the Avalon High Homecoming game and dance.
But all this won’t stop Ellie from trying to pull off the big dinner party she’s arranged to reunite Will with his parents . . . even though it’s probably going to be a total disaster…just like her running for Homecoming Queen against Morgan, Marco’s evil girlfriend.
The thing is, when you and your friends are reliving Arthurian legend, it seems like you can never catch a break!
