Just finished The Paladin Prophecy by Mark Frost. It's a rousing adventure involving a young boy with special abilities. He ends up in a school with four friends who also have unusual talents that are different from his own. I had some questions about who and why these abilities were developed, but I suspect the answers to those questions will be provided in the second or third book. I think decent male readers from grades six to eight would enjoy this book. Thanks to Net Gallery and Random House Children's Books for providing an electronic copy. Look for it in stores this September.
Middle School Teacher Librarian - I believe there's a book out there for everyone!
