Teen Book Group
The Cumberland Public Library Teen Book will meet Saturday 2/25 from 2 - 3 PM. We're reading The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen:
In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king's long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Four orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner's motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword's point—he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage's rivals have their own agendas as well.
This program is for middle and high school students. Pick up the book ahead of time to read before the meeting, where we'll discuss the story and have a snack. For further information or to sign up, please contact the Teen Services at 333-2552 x6 or firstname.lastname@example.org. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)
