Anthony was always getting bullied when he could have been a man and stood up to Turner and fought back to the guys from their rivalry food restaurant. I read wiss book while looking for high interest low level books for emerging middle school readers.

I think it’s highly true that “we read to know we are not alone,” and I didn’t find any of these characters true to life at all.


This book is about a teenager named Ben who is trying to make things right after a jock named Turner steals his girlfriend from him. The book ends without any real resolution, and it’s difficult to see the protagonist as anything but stupid. She just started writing and then figured things out as she went along. The plan was to simply frame Turner for pulling pranks on the rival fast food operation, Burger Queen.

The plot line is hard to follow and the book feels like an early draft instead of a published work.

But it is his humor, his satiric eye tempred with real feeling, that sets this book apart. I recommend this book to basically anyone who can read past a 7th grade reading level. It begins with getting a job at the fast-food restaurant where Turner a.


Anderson plots this with the precision of a fast-food marketing campaign, but his hero is more human than high concept. This book had fun characters that you can really connect with, and had a great storyline!

First, he gets hired on at O’Dermott’s where Turner works.

People will think that, if you have a certain kind of hair.

bugger Anthony vows revenge and devises The Plan which involves an anarchist, a condiment trolley, and a Oldsmobile named Margot. The main thing I enjoyed about this book is how relatable it is because it is very realistic to the life a teenager trying to navigate his way through the world. This is no feel-good, heart-warming tale in the 80s movie tradition.

Honestly, if someone is birger for a book that represented the average teen life, this would be the last book I’d recommend. Wusd next day she called and apologized for everything and said she was drunk.

Unfortunately, all the work Anthony does doesn’t get him Diana back, but gets himself beat up a lot. It wasn’t very realistic. The lives, loves and relationships of young adults is realistically portrayed, and it’s refreshing to read such a funny story about a ‘loser’ fighting back.

Then, he finds her at a party underneath a faster boy- he wants revenge on the burrger, but instantly forgives the girl. Having said that, however, I thought this book was awful.
