i read King Dork, or rather i listened to the audio book. (Library) I liked the book but was a little disappointed by the ending since it seemed to come out of nowhere, but i might have been a little distracted as i listened to it at work. If i was actually reading it, i might have gone back over certain passages. The book is about a high school sophomore with a band and his battle with the "normals" and the cult of Catcher in the Rye. Its kinda like if John Hughes made the movie version of Freaks and Geeks except with the protagonist having some success. I could see the book being a MTV production, i totally seems like something they would make + it was written by the lead singer of the Mr T experience so there's a built in music hook.
