Welcome to Loserville. It's 1971. Michael Dork may be a computer geek but he's invented something that could change the world. He's also discovered girls: a prospect (almost) as exciting as his love of binary.

Holly is the girl: she has looks and brains and wants to be the first woman in space - well, this is 1971! But will she want Michael? Eddie wants a fast ride to the top and doesn't care who gets trampled along the way. Leia just wants Eddie. Michael's friends are all set to change the course of history, fashion and dating - in no particular order, but just as soon as possible, especially the dating bit.
