Sean Crawford has two women in his life. It's all any 15-year-old guy could ask for...except that one is a domineering mother who controls his time and demands perfection of him. The other, Chloe, is a seemingly crazy/fantastic girl he met online who chats with him day and night. The problem is, she lives on the other side of the state, and he's never ever seen her in person. Also, he doesn't have a car. Or a driver's license. When Sean finds himself grounded instead of surfing when his parents head off on a weekend vacation, he decides it is time to be a little less perfect. Fueled by soda and adrenaline, he "borrows" his dad's Tesla and races across California to finally meet his internet crush. But Chloe isn't exactly looking for a weekend fling, and over the course of two wild days, she changes his life and everything he thought he knew about himself.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Disconnected starts out as a story of rebellious teen hijinks, and then takes a serious turn into a thoughtful look at parenting, teen vulnerability, and ever-changing family dynamics. Sean Crawford, feeling smothered by his "helicopter" adoptive parents, "borrows" his dad's Tesla while his folks are away, even though he's not 16 and has no driver's license. A little scared, but buoyed by his daring, he takes a road trip to meet Chloe, a girl he's become smitten with in an online relationship. Sean's voice-over narration helps convey the extraordinary emotions he must confront when the trip veers into unexpected territory, and Chloe isn't exactly what she seems. Occasional swearing ("ass," "s--t," "damn," "bitch") is heard, and Sean urinates at several roadside stops. There's some drinking in social settings; an underage teen consumes a bit of wine. Adult characters are revealed to be users of marijuana, though no on-camera smoking occurs. A few mild sexual references are made; a vibrator is discovered in a drawer. Young teens will likely appreciate this story, relate to its characters, and, along with the likeable hero, be surprised by the twists in the road.
