This is probably one of the few books I would read again. Jennifer Anne Kogler takes this book to the next level on Arthurian legends. But it is sadly one of those books to were you have to make it through the first few chapters to get hooked into it, but when you get to a point you just can't put the book down. I was in hopes to see if Jennifer had made another book continuing were it had left off. Nothing yetvbut time can only tell.

This book starts out slow but you have to stick with it. Arthurian legends are the best stories. The author takes it to a whole new level by writing the storie like a letter to an English teacher. Best Arthurian book I've read yet!!!

I really enjoyed this book. It was a cute fantasy story that uses the legend of king Arthur with a modern twist. It is also set up in a way that helps kids understand different types of literary terms.

I loved the Arthurian legend that was weaved into this supernatural tale. Lizzy has the power to know if those close to her are in danger of dying and while she might want to shy away from the duties that come with that knowledge, she never actually walks away. Instead she enlists the help of her best friend, even if she isn't totally honest about what the help is for. Even though the main character is deceiving her friend, family, and those in danger, it never comes off as a bad thing. She's quietly playing the hero in a tale that is bigger than even she realizes in the beginning. All of the characters are lovely, especially Lizzy's grandmother, Bizzy, who is kind of crazy eccentric, but it absolutely works for her. Lizzy's mom is obsessed with books and I loved hearing about the different reads she was recommending to characters in the story, it definitely made me want to reread Fever Pitch and Pride and Prejudice and check out some of the other mentioned books that I hadn't read yet. Even the bookstore/musicstore owner had his recommendations (and if you haven't read The Once and Future King, try it). While one part of the story was completed by the end of the book, it is left open for another book to continue on the tale. I hope to read more about Lizzy, her friends, her grandmother and just when this doomsday idea is going to come into play. Reviewed by Jessica for Book Sake.

Dealing with everything at once, this story highlights the strange turn of events on Lizzy's 14th Halloween. Perfect for any ages, this story comes alive and has a twist on the classic tales of the Arthurian legend, allowing Jennifer Kogler to put her own spin on it. Written in the form of an informal letter to her teacher, Mrs. Tweedy, Lizzy Mortimer tells a wild, adventurous story that seems unrealistic, until you realize that the truth, and the truth only, is being told.
