Luke is allergic to sunlight. He lives with his mother in a sterile closed house, watching TV and wondering about the outside world. His friend, Julie, is scared of life itself. When Luke hears about a healer, they and a bunch of their friends get in a van and travel by night to see if they can find a cure.

It's a cute book, this screwed up bunch of teenagers heading off on a road trip, and I like Scarlett Thomas' writing. The story drizzled off a bit towards the end - I think this was one of her earlier books.
