Named for the Boomerang generation millennials are often referred to, the story follows Peter Lawrence, a 25-year-old who is feeling stuck on an unwanted path. In the grips of a panic attack, he abruptly and angrily quits his menial job to pursue a career in writing.
However, Peter quickly learns that there are consequences to his actions. Now unemployed and forced to move back in with his parents, he believes that this is the perfect opportunity to begin his ambitious new career. But a hemorrhaging bank account and a penchant for drinking too much proves that Peter is deeper into his quarter-life crisis than he originally thought.
