A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzy", 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.
Light, contemporary romantic fantasy for teens. (Unofficial description)
Holy freaking crap. The cover, to start, is gorgeous. The story sounds amazing. I know the basics of the legend, and I really hope that it really is a light, contemporary romantic fantasy. There's so much potential for total ruin and danger and heartbreak. After reading Delirium this week, I'm not sure if I could take any more heartbreak. ;) I know, this doesn't come out until October, but if you've read my review (and feel free to if you haven't) you'll understand that I'll be reading Delirium again before the end of the year.
