It begins with getting a job at the fast-food restaurant where his nemesis happens to be a star employee. But when the Plan is finally in place, will Anthony's hunger for revenge be satisfied? 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 -M.T.

M. T. Anderson teaches in the MFA in Writing for Children program at Vermont College. He says: "When I was a teenager, I worked at McDonald's. On my first day, I had to go into the women's room and sponge up something that looked like an industrial disaster. I was almost fired for putting up a sign on the door that said Out of McOrder. The whole experience went downhill from there."
