The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen, 342 pages, read by Leslie, on 06/26/2013

The False Prince (The Ascendance Trilogy, #1)

In the country of Carthya, a devious nobleman engages four orphans in a brutal competition to be selected to impersonate the king’s long-missing son in an effort to avoid a civil war.

Definitely a book to appeal to the boys, it has a really nice twist at the end that all will enjoy.  Usually I can see the twists before they occur, but the author does a really good job keeping this one under wraps until the end.  I may just read the next ones in this series.
