Summary "Sixteen-year-old Sebastian has spent most of his life with his Nana in their geodesic dome home, a tourist attraction where she raises him on the futurist teachings of her former mentor Buckminster Fuller in hopes that one day Sebastian will carry Fuller's torch and make the world a better place. Sebastian begins sneaking around with Jared, a punk-obsessed teen with a heart transplant and an overbearing dad. They form a punk band and with his Nana's dreams, his first real friendship, and a church talent show at stake, Sebastian must decide if he wants to become the next Buckminster Fuller, the next Sid Vicious, or something else entirely."--Container.
