Jai is sent to boarding school when his parents are about to be deported to India. What becomes quickly apparent is that secrets abound within the school walls. Jai makes friends with Seal and Hugo and together they uncover the headmasterís plan to steal staff and studentsí "futures", their inner hopes and senses of purpose. Jai is mistaken as their leader by two staff members who shapeshift into animals and time travel into other worlds and take Jai with them.  This is a fast paced fantasy and adventure where time and place are not what they appear and a computer takes center stage in the solution to a mystery. For all those Harry Potter lovers out there, suggest Under The Catís Eye. Readers will not be disappointed.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Committee)
