What other readers are saying about this title:
Tom Henderson has read The Catcher in the Rye for practically every English class of his high school career. When the classic is assigned again, Tom digs out his deceased father’s old copy and makes an interesting discovery: what seems to be a secret code is scribbled in the margins. Suddenly a commonplace book might just be able to end the cycle of humiliation and suffering that is Tom’s life as the king dork of Hillmont High. As intriguing as the mystery of the beat-up copy of Catcher in the Rye is, it is Tom’s unique character that makes King Dork stand out. From his hilarious hobby of making up band names and album titles (even though he doesn’t play an instrument) to his self-deprecating wit, Tom is a remarkably engaging and likeable teen voice. With Tom leading the way through a story that’s chock full of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll, King Dork will appeal to the wannabe teenager rebel in all of us.
