Morgan is a willful, mischievous girl with mismatched eyes of emerald and violet. A girl of magic, whose childhood ends when King Uther Pendragon murders her father and steals away her mother. Then Pendragon dies and, in a warring country with no one to claim the throne, there are many who want Morgan dead. But Morgan has power, and magic. She is able to change the course of history, to become other, to determine her own fate-and, thus the fate of Britain. She will become Morgan le Fay.

I read this book back in high school (the year after its release) and I've read it dozens of times since. Easily my favorite book. Nancy Springer is an excellent writer and spins an incredible tale on a character we all think we know so well. I no longer look at the character Morgan Le Fay the same and anyone who reads this wont either.
I also suggest the follow up, I am Mordred, which was another awesome tale.
