The House of TomorrowBook - 2010
On the outskirts of a small town in Iowa, Sebastian Prendergast lives in a geodesic dome with his eccentric grandmother, who has spent the last eleven years homeschooling him on the teachings of futurist. Jared Whitcomb is a chain-smoking sixteen-year-old heart transplant recipient who befriends Sebastian, and begins to teach him about all the things he has been missing out on, including girls, grilled cheese sandwiches with grape soda, and Sid Vicious. Together they form a punk band called The Rash, and with the help of Jared's sister, Meredith, prepare to take the local church talent show by storm. But when Sebastian's grandmother has a stroke, he is forced to leave the dome and discover what it means to live a normal life. But when Sebastian's grandmother wants him to return to the dome will Sebastian give up The Rash - and lose his chance at winning Meredith's heart?
