Summary From the inaugural co-winner of the Scribe Nonfiction Prize for Young Writers comes a funny, energetic and original coming-of-age story that isn't quite like any other book you'll read this year. Oliver is a writer who's just moved to Melbourne. He doesn't have any friends yet; he can't get his surly flatmate, Mark, to crack a smile; and the only ones who will talk to him are the odd assortment of characters at the Keep Cup warehouse, where he plugs lids into cups in an endless cycle. Oliver's hours consist of a series of daydreams. He has sweet, touching fantasies of owning a dog and driving down the freeway with the girl of his dreams. He has ridiculous, outlandish fantasies of bursting through the roof at bedroom department-store chain Snooze. At nights, he begins to write a series of seemingly aimless online memories about growing up in pre-9/11 America
