Peter Bognanni's debut novel is still an interesting and entertaining read. Though it sticks with the formula and is peopled with predictable characters, the plot itself and the characters themselves are a joy to watch. This is a story about punk rock, geodesic domes, hero worship, education, and friendship. There's nothing formulaic about the individual aspects of the story, just the way they interact with one another.

Raised by his eccentric grandmother, Sebastian was homeschooled in the beliefs of futurist philosopher Buckminster Fuller and was granted minimal exposure to the world outside his geodesic dome. When Nana has a stroke, Sebastian begins to live a little. An entertaining story of natural teenage rebellion—the kind that makes you lie about where you’ve been, eat junk food, phone girls, and play punk music at the church talent show
