Every Boarding School Has its Secrets...

Jack Hayes hopes to have an incredible senior year at St. Paul's Catholic seminary. But he must stay clear of Father Lawrence "Spider" Webb, the stern Dean of Students who rules the boarding school with an iron fist. When Jack and his best friend unexpectedly encounter a mysterious priest late one night, the reclusive old man provides cryptic clues that lead them to uncover long-kept secrets about the school and Father Webb. Their discoveries - often made while breaking the rules - put both boys squarely in the Spider's crosshairs. Even more shocking, the revelations lead to catastrophic events that endanger lives and threaten the school's very existence.

The Chosen Few combines mystery with magical realism in an emotional coming-of-age tale. If you like stories about high school kids and strict boarding schools or classics such as A Separate Peace, The Chosen Few offers a peek behind the curtain of boys studying for the priesthood at a twentieth-century Catholic seminary.
