Books received for review

Tris & Izzie
by Mette Ivie Harrison
Publisher: Egmont USA
Source: Netgalley
To be released: October 11, 2011

I loved Tristan et Iseult when I read it back in French class, so I am so excited to read this modern version!

A modern retelling of the German fairytale "Tristan and Isolde", Tris and Izzie is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until -- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school.
