Book DescriptionWelcome to The Modest Proposal Institute
Like many young men, Alexis dreams of adventure and being an adventurer, a Viking or a Pirate, or maybe just your movie-style heroic action man saving the Western world. He knows that he's going to do it by leading his new school, an offshore boarding school and university built by his grandfather and a retired engineer, to ever greater success. The only barrier he sees standing in his way is a kid called Shane.
Shane is only at the school because he somehow upsets people whenever he speaks, which isn't too surprising because while they're very ordinary, he's very extra-ordinarily clever. It turns out this strange island school is full of misfits like him and he quickly sees that his destiny is to lead it to worlds away from the people who rejected him. His only real rival for head of the Institute is a kid called Alexis.
Each of them believes that only by besting the other, and by clever detective work to stop the other's rise, will they achieve their true place and that only under their leadership will the future of the world be safe. It's a coming-of-age, do-or-die struggle, him or me story - or is it? Could they both achieve their destinies?
