"A funny and unique debut." (Publishers Weekly).
Sebastian Prendergast lives with his eccentric grandmother in a geodesic dome. His homeschooling has taught him much-but he's learned little about girls, junk food, or loud, angry music.
Then fate casts Sebastian out of the dome, and he finds a different kind of tutor in Jared Whitcomb: a chain-smoking sixteen-year-old heart transplant recipient who teaches him the ways of rebellion. Together they form a punk band and plan to take the local church talent show by storm. But when his grandmother calls him back to the futurist life she has planned for him, he must decide whether to answer the call-or start a future of his own.
Sebastian Prendergast grows up in a geodesic dome home with his idealistic grandmother, but after she suffers a stroke he is befriend by chain-smoking Jared Whitcomb who gives Sebastian a crash course in all that matters in life: swearing, girls, and punk rock. The two form a band, The Rash, and, despite their inept musical abilities, set their sights on performing in the Methodist Church talent show. A quirky, off-color yet warmhearted tale of adolescence, THE HOUSE OF TOMORROW is a dead-on portrait of the deeds and desires of two true misfits.
