INTERMEDIATE FICTION
Avi,

The Player King

(2) 4-6 In 1486, Lambert Simnel, orphan and scullion (and a real-life historical figure), learns that he is in fact Edward, Earl of Warwick, rightful heir to the English throne. Lambert revels in his new power but soon learns his life is in peril even from his supporters. This engaging middle-grade novel's direct, accessible narrative style provides adequate historical detail without bogging the story down.
