The life of Preston Arsement is an almost perfect one. He has a loving family, good grades, and a fair few amount of friends. For him, everything is great. And then Robert Latsky moves to his school. Robert is the opposite of everything Preston has ever known. His hair is blue, his grades are poor, and his skin is marked with inky stains. Drawings of flowers litter his work in the place of notes, and he prefers the company of cigarettes and alcohol to that of people. Rob's everything Preston isn't, so why are they so quick to fall in love?
