Project Nought is a fast-paced graphic novel for young adults, blending romance and time travel adventure.
Ren Mittal’s last memory is getting on a bus in 1996 to visit his mystery pen pal Georgia. He wakes up in 2122 and thinks he may be hallucinating. But he’s not!
In 2122, tech giant Chronotech sponsors a time travel programme to help students learn history. Who better than real-life subjects who’ve been transported into the future, like Ren.
Ren’s life in the 1990s seems like ancient history and he’s not sure how he feels about that. He soon discovers that his time-travel memory will be wiped before he’s sent back to the ‘90s. Plus, he’s forming a crush on his student guide, Mars. When Ren crosses paths with the absolute last person he expected to see in the future, he has a bigger problem on his hands. What if Chronotech isn’t the benevolent organisation they claim to be? What if he and his fellow time-travellers are in grave danger?
