    "There are so many plot lines in this book, and the pace does not let up from first page to the last page. There are new twists and turns. I cannot reveal without spoiling. This is definitely an excellent book."

    "I got this book to give to my daughter because I wanted her to read a story with a strong female presence. The main character in this is so strong and loving. I wanted my daughter to see that these were positive traits in this scary world and this book delivered. Kept her captivated with fantasy and romance and gave her a heroin to look up to. Very impressed."

    "This is among the best young adult novels published in 2005. I like the way the author treats the adolescents. They are complex and intelligent. They are not pretentious or silly. But they have the impulsiveness of youth."

    "Not only is this great young adult fiction but it also touches on some of the Greek Mythology and teaches about the Greek Gods. The protagonist is a pre-teen who sees adults as silly and of course he and his friends have to save the day by solving a theft."

    "Don't young adults have enough drama in their life without reading about it? I'm not talking about good drama, this is just a laundry list of unnecessary angst printed on paper that no kid should worry about."

    "This was a fun read, but the setup seemed totally unrealistic. I guess realism isn't really what YA romance readers are looking for? Still, it's bubble-gum fun if you're looking for a light read about a teen character having a series of improbable adventures involving a cute guy."

    "Avalon High is a pretty good novel for young adults. It was good enough to be picked up by Disney which my kids used to watch. It offers a nice blend of romance, history and fantasy. The plot starts out as your average high school story but soon evolves."
