Book Nook - Those Who Would Be King: The People's Prince

I recently had a chance to see a copy of Those Who Would Be King: The People's Prince. The premise of the book is that a teenage boy is suddenly
thrust into the spotlight as an uber-wealthy King of an impoverished African nation. He has to decide whether he will help his people, or follow the status quo of the rulers before him.

The story is a little bit convoluted, with some crazy twists and turns, involving mistaken identities, different values, and plots that sometimes see opposing sides actually having overlapping goals. It's an interesting story, though, one that kept me reading straight through the book! It might not be a book I would have normally picked up, but it was definitely a story I enjoyed.
