Quinton Wyatt's summer break before high school should be nothing but wall-to-wall fun. Instead, his best friend has stopped talking to him; his fiendish older sister has filled his head with tales of a sadistic high school ritual called "The Freshman Stomp"; and his divorced father has started dating the city's most notorious barfly. Maybe a robot rabbit and a boy from his past can help salvage Quinton's vacation and launch him into the difficult - but often hilarious - world of young adulthood.

A comedy novel with some strong LGBTQ messages about self worth and correcting mistakes. The plot follows a boy about to enter high school with a bevy of regrets including being mean to a former classmate who had a crush on him. 2 years later, Quint Wyatt (the protagonist) has the chance to right his wrongs, lead on by his conscience which through his imagination takes an unusual form.
