The Newstead Project

Joel Cranston thinks he’s the luckiest guy ever. He's just been recruited to Newstead, a blue-chip private school, while he's still a junior. Deep down he knows there has to be a catch. And there is. Newstead didn’t pick him because he’s lucky. They picked him because they know something he doesn't: that he's either exactly what they need to complete their plans of world domination, or he's the biggest threat they've ever known. Full length novel.
