Publisher Comments:

After becoming what he so clearly and strongly resisted—a consumer—Josh Swensen finds himself in a paranoid state of no return. That is, until hes kidnapped and coaxed into resurfacing as Larry, his old activist persona. Before long, Larry is back on the scene with much more on his mind than anti-consumerism—this time, he wants to affect change in government. And Larry isnt taking a conventional path or starting small in local government. He just doesnt do things halfway. But can he really become an eighteen-year-old president of the United States? Even if he can, is he sure he really wants to?
