Avalon High: Coronation #2: Homecoming
Meg Cabot's magical Arthurian epic continues ...Manga style! Will's dangerous brother, Marco, has been released from the mental hospital, and it seems as if he's turned over a new leaf. But Ellie isn't sure she trusts him yet, especially when she keeps having creepy nightmares about him every night. Meanwhile, Mr. Morton is still convinced that Ellie's boyfriend, Will, is the reincarnation of King Arthur and that if Ellie doesn't help Will believe this, too, the world is going to end-this Friday. 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 might be a total disaster. When you and your friends are reliving Arthurian legend, you can never catch a break!

Our customer reviews
Meg Cabot and Jinky Coronado are back in a second installment of the AVALON HIGH CORONATION series. HOMECOMING is Volume 2 of the continuation. Will's brother, Marco, has been released from the psychiatric hospital. Marco corners Ellie at the local park to convince her that the idea of Will being the incarnation of King Arthur is totally foolish. Marco starts to convince Ellie that even he no longer believes that he's involved in the foretold prophecy. But the two are interrupted by the arrival of Morgan, Marco's girlfriend. Morgan has it out for Ellie and does everything she can to get her to withdraw from the Homecoming Queen race. Ellie is hardly concerned because she's convinced that her friend, Jennifer, is meant to win the title anyway. So putting thoughts of Homecoming out of her mind, Ellie is determined to get her boyfriend, Will, reconnected with his estranged family. Will's family doesn't have any time for the silly notion of the reincarnation of King Arthur, and unless Will chooses the path his father wishes him to pursue, his father has little to say to him. The dinner goes horribly wrong, and Ellie is troubled by nightmares. Her World Civ teacher reminds her that everything that has occurred has already been foretold. If she doesn't convince Will that he's the reincarnation by the Hunter's Moon the following night, chaos will ensue. Nothing like having the weight of the world on your shoulders on top of all the other struggles of high school This follow-up to THE MERLIN PROPHECY is just as stunningly crafted as that first book. The artwork tells the story that Meg Cabot has created in beautiful detail. The story is easy to follow and the ending leaves the reader dangling, waiting for the next part of the story in Volume 3, HUNTER'S MOON.show moreby TeensReadToo
