A "smart and entertaining"* anti-love story from YA master Blake Nelson

James Hoff likes to rant against America's consumerist culture--the malls, the SUVs, the focus on clothes. He also likes to rant against his ex-girlfriend, Sadie, who he doesn't feel is doing enough to change the world --a bike path can't save the environment. But just like he can't avoid buying things, he also can't avoid Sadie for long. This anti-consumerist love story is all about idealism, in James's relationship with the world around him and his relationships with the people around him.

This is a fantastic, funny, sexy, cool masterpiece from one of the best YA writers working today.
