M.T. Anderson, author of the award-winning THIRSTY, cooks up a story of love and betrayal, with a side order of revenge—and serves it all with comedic relish.
Anthony has never been able to stand up for himself—that is, not until his girlfriend, Diana, is in someone else's arms. Then Anthony vows revenge and devises The Plan. It begins with getting a job at the fast-food restaurant where Turner (a.k.a. the guy who stole his girlfriend) happens to be a star employee. But when The Plan is finally assembled in this hilarious novel that PUBLISHERS WEEKELY called "both a tasty treat and a stinging satire," will Anthony's hunger for revenge be satisfied? And more important, will he prove he's not a wuss?
"M.T. Anderson has an uncanny ear for how a generation speaks - his dialogue crackles with authenticity. But it is his humor, his satiric eye tempred with real feeling, that sets this book apart." - Kathryn Lasky — None
"Ferociously funny." - Tim Wynne-Jones — None
