Cheeseburger Subversive
 

ISBN: 978-1-894345-54-5

 We have all been there: those sublime and ordinary moments in growing up that create the evolution of change, or as Cheeseburger Subversive’s Dak Sifter would call it, a “shifting of gears”. 

Scarsbrook’s novel captures the weird logic of self discovery that marks the explorations of boy becoming man, and in its noise and thrashing, explodes the maturity myth. Cheeseburger Subversive is the one compelling “must read” if you want to have some serious fun.

"A very funny and heartwarming debut." — Books in Canada
