Here is the summary of the book:
All fourteen-year-old gamer girl Sophie Sawyer wants to do is defeat Morgan Le Fay in her favorite Arthurian videogame. She has no idea the secret code sent via text message is actually a magical spell that will send her back in time to meet up with a real life King Arthur instead.
Of course Arthur's not king yet--he hasn't pulled the sword from the stone--and he has no idea of his illustrious destiny. And when a twist of fate sends him forward in time--to modern day high school--history is suddenly in jeopardy. Even more so when Arthur Googles himself and realizes what lies in store for him if he returns to his own time--and decides he'd rather try out for the football team instead.
Now Sophie and her best friend Stuart find themselves in a race against time--forced to use their 21st century wits to keep history on track, battle a real-life version of their favorite videogame villain, and get the once and future king back where he belongs. Or the world, as they know it, may no longer exist.
My first Mancusi book and it was hilariously and epically amazing. Legends and that too of Camelot always makes for an interesting read or worth watching if it is as a television show (like Merlin). Of course with time travel in the mix I just couldn't resist.
Sporting a story for a young audience but can be enjoyed by everyone, The Camelot Code provides for an entertaining easy read. Ingrained in with the values of friendship, doing whats right and the woes of first love (evidently the book is a part of Mari Mancusi's standalone series 'First Kiss Club'), its very interesting to see two best friend gamers Sophie and Stu as they discover that the Legendary Camelot and all of its mythological figures are very much real. And for Merlin, Arthur, Guinevere and Morgan la Fae to experience the 21st Century. Ray-bans, pizzas, the computer (magic box) and Google to name a few.
Full of witty trivia and your usual teen drama with a major hike of the paranormal and the mythical, 'The Camelot Code' was a memorable experience and I'm totally checking out her other books now.
