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 sixteen-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.

Professional reviews

"Seventeen-year-old Sebastian Prendergast has lived in a geodesic dome with his unconventional grandmother ever since he lost his parents. Influenced by the philosophy of Buckminister Fuller, Sebastian's strong-minded grandmother homeschools him and prepares him for greatness. Lloyd James provides the tongue-in-cheek playfulness this story requires and portrays compassion when necessary. When Sebastian's grandmother has a stroke, he must go to the home of his friend Jared, where he discovers a form of family life that has eluded him but is not without complications. James portrays his sense of discovery as he encounters new relationships and experiences, including dealing with the pretty Meredith, becoming a member of Jared's punk rock band, and the usual teenage disappointments.
