About the book: First there’s Maddie, a shy teenage nobody who has a sexual awakening on drugs in a snowstorm in the 1990s. Then Miranda and Paul, child prodigies turned adult screw-ups, receive their estranged father’s will in the mail just as he becomes famous for his role in the 2008 financial crash. Next up, Gabriel, a nice Jewish boy with dreams of being a movie star, gets released from prison and moves back home, where the gang he joined on the inside puts his parents in an awkward position. And finally, there’s Cee, a disgruntled queer Starbucks barista and computer hacker who decides to get sweet revenge on their employer but totally alters the fate of humanity instead.

Want to see how low these misfit toys can go? Then crack this little book open and follow them all the way to the bottom.

Raised by wolves on the fringes of Washington DC, I now live in Baltimore, MD with my bratty cats, Beatrix and Bubbles, and too many Squishmellows.
