So I started writing it late last May (cause I figured doing 4 APs, two crazy math classes, and a bunch of other stuff still left over a lot of free time) and I'm about 70% (326 pages) done. It's a fiction novel about a kid named David whose late father was the head of a defense organization protecting a country from high-tech invaders called the Triumvirate. Basically, David gets introduced to a new organization called PHOENIX that fights against the Triumvirate using infiltration and other covert methods. Along the way, though, he loses a lot of his friends (one that was probably his main friend may or may not turn out to be on the Triumvirate's side) but also learns a lot of important life lessons from the agents in PHOENIX. Sorry if that doesn't really make sense, it's super hard to make a plot summary for a book that isn't based on a quest and also the plot summary doesn't really highlight the character interactions... but you asked what it is about, so hehe... :)

It's slightly futuristic... there's tech that's similar to hyperspace in Star Wars except it's only used by regular aircraft here on Earth to cover short distances between cities faster... there's also a pretty complex use of nanotech particles for armor (not a great analogy but think Big hero 6).
