Fiction P837k 2008
Tom Henderson, aka King Dork, is a typical American high school loser until he discovers the book--The Cather in the Rye--that will change the world as he knows it.
Thanks to his deceased father's copy of the Salinger classic, Tom finds himself in the middle of several interlocking conspiracies and at least half a dozen mysteries involvoing dead people, naked people, fake people, a secret code, guitars, girls, the Crusades, a devil head, and rock and roll. And it all looks like it may very well unravel the puzzle of his father's death and--oddly--reveal the secret to attracting semi-hot girls.
Though being in a band could be the secret to the girl thing--but good luck finding a drummer who can count to four.
