A lot of it was laugh out loud funny. This author is so clever with his words.

Thanks for sending this to me from Bookstogive's General Literature VBB. I haven't heard of this book, but I like young adult books, plus the use of The Catcher in the Rye book in the storyline makes me curious to read it.

Book #1 in the King Dork series: Tom Henderson (a.k.a. King Dork, Chi-mo, Hender-fag, and Sheepie) is a typical American high school loser until he discovers the book, The Catcher in the Rye, that will change the world as he knows it. When Tom discovers his deceased father's copy of the Salinger classic, he finds himself in the middle of several interlocking conspiracies and at least half a dozen mysteries involving dead people, naked people, fake people, ESP, blood, a secret code, guitars, monks, witchcraft, the Bible, girls, the Crusades, a devil head, and rock and roll. And it all looks like it's just the tip of a very odd iceberg of clues that may very well unravel the puzzle of his father's death and-oddly-reveal the secret to attracting semi-hot girls. Being in a band could possibly be the secret to the girl thing-but good luck finding a drummer who can count to four.

My Review: This was a darkly humorous view into the mind and life of a young man who is intelligent, considers himself a dork/nerd, and is trying to figure out girls, the mystery behind his dad's death, and how to navigate high school.

Favorite quotes from the book:
"This year they had signs up everywhere trying to stoke excitement over Spirit Week: 'Come See the Spirit Towel!' Even if I knew what the hell the Spirit Towel was, I don't think I'd tell you: I'm pretty sure we're all better off not knowing."

"I felt a strange sense of well-being. Here was the only conversation I'd ever had in the boys' bathroom that hadn't consisted of introductory remarks to an eventual attempt on my life....So this is what it's like, I thought. Going to the bathroom would never be the same again."

This wasn't chosen from the General Lit VBB for two rounds so I am removing from the list.
