Praise for The House of Tomorrow:
* “Funny and unique . . . An honest, noisy, and raucous look at friendship and how loud music can make almost everything better.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Sebastian—part Candide, part Christopher Boone from The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time—has landed deep inside the world of Rick Moody’s The Ice Storm.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Bognanni’s ability to recall the anger, fear, and yearnings of being sixteen as well as the rush of possibilities on the horizon is also what makes the book so engaging.” —The Boston Globe
“A young man lives with his grandmother in a geodesic dome in Iowa. No surprise: He’s a total oddball. Yes, surprise: His life makes for a sweet novel.” —O, The Oprah Magazine
“Explores the unlikely friendship of two social outcasts and their desperation to be heard . . . fun and lively.” —Booklist
The House of Tomorrow is a hard-edged but heartrending story of growing up strange in a small Midwestern town. Anyone who’s been there is sure to relate to Sebastian and Jared–and to hope that The Rash lives on beyond its monumental and unforgettable debut.” —BookPage

“The mantra recited every morning by the main character in Peter Bognanni’s novel The House of Tomorrow: ‘I will use my mind, not just my regular brain lobes.’ (I like that more every time I read it.)” —New York Magazine
“It’s sort of like the next Gilbert Grape.” —The Des Moines Register
“In this winningly precocious debut novel, a teenager raised in a geodesic dome by an R. Buckminster Fuller-obsessed grandmother escapes from captivity, discovers the Misfits, and explores the mystical outside world of adolescent rebelling and crap punk rock.” —Details
