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?

Not Meg Cabot's Best...

Reader reviewed by Booked Books

Ellie's terrifying nightmares about a psychotic and tyrannical Marco begins soon after she encounters him in the park. Recently released from the mental hospital, Marco seems normal and harmless enough. Will, Ellie's boyfriend as well as Marco's brother, thinks otherwise. He absolutely cannot forgive Marco for attempting to kill him and Ellie before. As if that wasn't drama enough, Will is possibly the reincarnation of King Arthur, while Ellie is the reincarnation of the Lady of the Lake. All of this is according to Mr. Morton, their civics teacher, who also believes that the world would collapse if Will doesn't embrace his destiny by homecoming night, the day of the Hunter's Moon.
Worrying about all of this leaves little time for Ellie to think about the fact that she's been nominated for homecoming queen and that mean-girl Morgan is trying to sabotage her chances.


Another light and easy-to-read novel, I just sped through the story pretty quickly. There wasn't much substance in it, so I feel like there isn't much to say about it. It was an enjoyable read and would have been more so if it weren't so predictable. Admittedly, I haven't read the first book, so I'm sure there are important bits and pieces I've missed because of that. I do love the legend of King Arthur; so naturally, I love how it was placed in a modern-day setting. The story does end with a cliff-hanger, leaving room for the next book in the series. Overall, it's a good read if you're on-the-go or just bored and looking for something light to read.

Just another comic book.

Avalon High Coronation Volume 2: Homecoming by Meg Cabot Illustrated by Jinky Coronado*
2 out of 5 stars

Homecoming Volume Two in the Avalon High Coronation by Meg Cabot and illustrated by Jinky Coronado was not really literature at all, just a thicker comic book.

Marco, Wills dangerous brother, has been released from the mental hospital. Now what is Ellie suppose to do? With Marco on the loose again, she and Will are both in danger. But then again, how can they be in danger? All that stuff about Will being the reincarnation of King Arthur isnt real. Just some loony teachers idea. Why then is Ellie having nightmares about the end of the world? Mr. Morton, is convinced Ellies boyfriend, Will, is the reincarnation of King Arthur. And if Will doesnt believe that he is by The Hunters Moon, which is also Homecoming night, the world is going to end. How can Ellie convince Will he is the reincarnation of King Arthur, run for homecoming queen, survive school and Mr. Morton, solve Wills family problems, and not to mention, save the world?

There really wasnt a whole lot of words. The main thing this graphic novel had was pictures. I dont understand why they put Meg Cabots name so much larger than the Jinky Coronados on the book cover. Jinky Coronado obviously had the harder and longer job.

The pictures really are what told the story. If the first chapter hadnt recapped Volume One I would have been totally lost. I never really got into it. The main girl, Ellie, broke down crying to many times for me. It portrayed her being weak and feeble, which I dont believe was the authors intentions. Ellies boyfriend, Will, was portrayed as stubborn and unbelieving of everything Ellie said to him. I thought the characters just werent very likable. Nothing in this book stood out at me or made me want more.

Homecoming was really short and not remember able.
