9780141322803: King Dork

Tom Henderson is small, skinny and awkward, and pretty much feels like an idiot most of the time. But when he discovers his father's copy of The Catcher in the Rye, it changes his world. It puts him in the middle of several interlocking conspiracies and at least half a dozen mysteries involving dead people, naked people, fake people, ESP, blood, guitars, monks, witchcraft and rock and roll. It's the tip of a very odd iceberg of clues that could help Tom unravel the puzzle of his father's death, and bizarrely reveal the secret of attracting semi-hot girls . . .

King Dork made a massive splash on first publication in the US and is already heralded as a cult classic, with a movie in the pipeline. It's a brilliantly original voice from a major new talent.

Review:

King Dork is well and away the best YA book I've read this year and Frank Portman is definitely someone to watch out for. It's inventive and sexy, it's fun to read and provides endless food for thought everything I want from a book ( Melvin Burgess )
