Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison

October 11, 2011

Egmont USA

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.

This book is so adorable looking/sounding! What first caught my attention was the cover, but when I went on to read the summary- it caught my attention even more. I love modern retellings, even though I don’t read them much. Love Potions and Love and New Boys at School! This book sounds like its own little potion of amazing. I can’t wait to read it!

This book does sound adorable and like it had an amazing story. It kind of reminds me of "Juliet Immortal," since their both new twists on old romantic tales. I can't wait to read it! Great post.

I've seen this around, but I never realized it was a Greek retelling! I'll have to keep an eye out on this one - great pick!

I've read the book and the story was very incredulous. I liked the way they twisted the different plots.

I've read the book as well and I learned a lot of dating techniques. The story is fantastic and I love the way they incorporate old romantic tales.
