What if one day you were sitting in front of a computer screen and the impossible happened--it started really communicating with you? What if it offered to do your homework? Just when Pollard Ian Gunning is giving up on almost everything--eighth grade, the Red Sox, his lousy home life-- that's just what happens. And that's only the beginning. Next, the computer teaches Pollard how to be a dream athlete, how to make new friends, and how to go on the perfect date. Suddenly, Pollard's mixed-up world takes a techno-turn, and the "year of weird" becomes the year a very personal computer comes to his rescue.
Justine Rendal has written a fresh, funny, and moving novel about loss and love and unlikely friendship that shows how sometimes even the impossible can become wonderfully true.
