Publisher's Summary

Sebastian Prendergast lives in a geodesic dome with his eccentric grandmother, who homeschooled him in the teachings of futurist philosopher R. Buckminster Fuller. But when his grandmother has a stroke, Sebastian is forced to leave the dome and make his own way in town.
Jared Whitcomb is a chain-smoking 16-year-old heart-transplant recipient who befriends Sebastian and begins to teach him about all the things he has been missing, including grape soda, girls, and Sid Vicious. They form a punk band called The Rash, and it's clear that the upcoming Methodist Church talent show has never seen the likes of them.
With storytelling that is fresh and vivid, The House of Tomorrow is destined to become an instant classic.

The House of Tomorrow

The House of Tomorrow is about a sheltered boy cared for by his grandmother who is raising him to save the world, through the teachings of Buckminster Fuller. Through a series of events, he is befriended by a punk rock kid. The interactions between these two young boys are hilarious. Sebastian is naive and practical, and has a hard time following the sarcastic remarks made by Jared, who has been through more than the typical teenager.

The audio version is very well done. The narrator captures the innocence of Sebastian and the sarcastic tone of Jared perfectly.
