Avalon High is a fun YA romp. It's a contemporary re-telling (ish) of Arthurian legend, set in high school. This was my first Meg Cabot book, and it was honestly better than I expected. There was no cheesy love triangle, the protagonists parents were alive and involved in her life, and the protagonist was intelligent and analytical, not a total bimbo.

My only annoyance was the protagonist's Valley Girl speech. She'd go from intelligent woman to "I so looked forward to that. Not." And I got enough of that, living in SoCal in the 80's and 90's, to never want to deal with it again.

Aside from that small blemish, I thoroughly enjoyed this frothy, light-hearted contemporary YA. I recommend it for fans of the genre, Arthurian legend, YA myth retellings, and anyone curious to read the Lady of Shalott.
