Publisher Comments:

In Welcome to the Nerdfarm!: A Doonesbury Book life comes full circle as another Doonesbury Gen Nexer heads for college. With Zipper way-too-deeply embedded at Walden ("America's number-one safety school") Alex boldly opts for MIT, "the nerdfarm," where 30-hour study binges are de rigueur. Daily 911 calls home and a sense of doom ("Just get some duct tape, roll me up in my bedspread, and ship me home . . .") give way as Gal Doonesbury finds fellowship among the similarly exhausted: "No nerd left behind," explains roomie Drew, as they co-brainstorm their way through finals.

The indomitable Granny D struggles with a life change as well; the move from sunny Oklahoma to live with Mike and Kim in saturated, caffeinated Seattle leaves her distinctly unbuzzed. Then there's the on-air unraveling of Mark and Chase's marriage ("I'm tired of living with a Nazi!"), with Joanie handling the technicalities of dissolving a legally nonexistent union. Equally traumatic is Uncle Duke's change of status, emerging from a months-long stupor to find himself pulling down six figures as a K Street lobbyistand reregistering as a Democrat.

Also shifting kin groups is B.D., who reluctantly joins PTSD group therapy, where Dex, Kurt, and Jason call him on much-needed 'tude adjustments. But there are signs of improvement: "I didn't explode!" he exults, after finding Zipper living in his office. That homeless yet ebulliently overoptimistic undergrad is deeply smitten with Alex, but is dangerously far ahead of herpicking out their future tabloid nickname before she even knows they're an item. Understandably, her considerable attention is focused elsewhereon surviving MIT's killer grind and on the Battle of the Bots, a high-tech smackdown where she unleashes Alfie, an impudent, high-end hoverbot. Bring it, techgirl.
