Jade | 3 comments I'm looking for a book I read in my high school days, the details are fuzzy but here's what I remember.
The main character is a male in high school.
He has a job at McDonald's (or some burger place) where he works the night shift and is allowed to eat leftover burgers.
He has a best friend another male who is gay. Whenever this friend is upset, he works as a prostitute.

What years were you in high school?
Remember the cover?
Author female or male?

Tales of the Madman Underground was suggested by someone in another thread.

He has a possibly gay friend, and reviewers noted:

"he takes on a collection of five jobs (furniture delivery, McDonalds clean-up, waiter, lawn mowing and gardening, and sells ads for radio)."

"he earns from working five jobs including night clean up at McDonald's"

"sleeping at McDonald's and working tons of jobs."

"another character is a male prostitute for male suitors"

From the book: "...between all my jobs and hanging out I was already eating like five thousand hamburgers a week."
