He's just your typical young adult struggling to find his place in life, and like many teenagers, doesn't always understand the often baffling, sometimes exasperating ways of the world.However, unlike your typical teenager, Highston has found a unique way to cope with the anxiety of impending independence: he imagines a constantly changing roster of celebrity friends who provide him with comfort and guidance.While Highston's fantasy world of down-home sensible advice from punk rocker Flea and dance lessons from basketball star Shaquille O'Neill works for him, it's hugely concerning and bewildering to his extended family, who struggle to protect and encourage Highston on the path to independence and well-being.Should they try to put a stop to his delusions? Get him medical treatment? Force him out of the house to face the realities of life? Mom and Dad aren't sure. There are no self-help books for the parents of a kid who thinks that Daniel Day-Lewis gives him dating advice. Uncle Billy believes that Highston is fine the way he is, but Billy might not be too mentally sound himself. Brother Bud is an annoyed, and annoying, know-it-all who is embarrassed by his big brother's behavior, while little sister Pam gives Highston unconditional love and support.So Highston presses on to the edge of adulthood, having found a way to survive and even flourish that puts him at odds with the expected behavior of our society. But in a world gone mad and looking crazier every day, Highston just might be the sanest person of all. See less
