Wandering in the vastness of space, is the Sky Drifter; an academy reserved for the best students in the known universe. Seven is just such a student.

Everything is the way he likes it, until he sees a mysterious girl in a red coat, who will reveal to him a secret that will bring everything he thought he knew crashing down around him.
The Sky Drifter by Paris Singer
Imagine being able to attend an academy for gifted students from around the globe, now, think bigger…bigger still, and place the academy within a monstrous spacecraft and make your fellow classmates representatives of every known being in the universe! That’s where we meet Seven, his best friends Pi and Iris, all from different planets. Take a field trip aboard a space shuttle with Seven and I have to say, it sounded a lot more exciting than getting on the big yellow bus!
He is happy with life, he is at the top of his Strategies class, plays Sphere well and the only wart in his existence seems to be the requisite school bully who seems to have it out for him. And then it happened. Seven began seeing a strange girl, strange sights and even stranger events that no one else sees. Is he losing his mind? Will he be kicked out of the academy? Or is he being given a secret view into something more sinister than one could imagine? Is the academy in danger or is it just him? Who can he trust? Strap in, prepare to blast off, destination: The Sky Drifter as Paris Singer flexes his writing muscles and takes us on a journey into the stars and beyond!
