Oliver Tate is a precocious 15-year-old whose worldview is exceedingly clever but largely delusional. He has two big ambitions: to save his parents’ marriage and to lose his virginity before his next birthday. Worried that his mom Jill is having an affair with a has-been TV star turned New Age life coach, Graham T. Purvis, Oliver monitors his parents’ sex life by charting the dimmer switch in their bedroom. But foremost in Oliver’s mind is finding a girlfriend. Enter Jordana Bevan, a refreshingly complicated girl, a feisty pyromaniac who suffers form eczema. Jordana becomes Oliver’s willing accomplice in his mission to lose his virginity, but on condition that she supervises his journal writing, especially the bits about her.
