This National Book Award Finalist is now a major motion picture -- one of the most buzzed-about films at Sundance 2013, starring Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller.

SUTTER KEELY. HEÕS the guy you want at your party. HeÕll get everyone dancing. HeÕ ll get everyone in your parentsÕ pool. Okay, so heÕs not exactly a shining academic star. He has no plans for college and will probably end up folding menÕs shirts for a living. But there are plenty of ladies in town, and with the help of Dean Martin and SeagramÕs V.O., lifeÕs pretty fabuloso, actually.

Until the morning he wakes up on a random front lawn, and he meets Aimee. AimeeÕs clueless. Aimee is a social disaster. Aimee needs help, and itÕs up to the Sutterman to show Aimee a splendiferous time and then let her go

forth and prosper. But AimeeÕs not like other girls, and before long heÕs in way over his head. For the first time in his life, he has the power to make a difference in someone elseÕs lifeÑor ruin it forever.
