With the exception of his uncontrollable epileptic episodes, the scars on his back that serve as physical reminders of a childhood tragedy, and the unwanted attention he receives as a result of being the inspiration for his fatherís hugely popular science fiction novel, sixteen-year-old Finn Easton is content with his life. Still, when the girl of Finnís dreams moves across the country, Finn and best friend Cade embark on a wild, hilarious, and unauthorized road trip under the guise of a college visit.
