Burger Wuss

By M. T. Anderson

“Savaging young love, male adolescence, and . . . the fast-food business. . . . Did somebody say McSatire?” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Anthony has never been able to stand up for himself—that is, not until his girlfriend 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 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?

  • A clever and funny novel for teens who know that revenge is best served with limp lettuce and plastic cheese on a floppy fast-food bun.
  • In paperback with an appealing new cover, an edition to draw in the many fans M.T. Anderson has earned over the decades — and the new ones he'll gain with Landscape With Invisible Hand, publishing the same month.
  • The social commentary and sophistication of Anderson's National Book Award Finalist Feed with an all-too-familiar fast-food-franchise setting.
