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 semihot 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kenneth | 2/15/2014

    " I ended hitting the groove with this book, even when my expectations were low. Something about relating to the subject matter (albeit separated from the protagonist geographically and by a couple of decades). The narrative may take awhile to get into, but it is a wonderful rendering of high school growing pains. "

    " Not bad. Okay book. About 100 pages too long. First-time writer Frank Portman paints the high-school landscape like it just happened yesterday. However, it's a bit over-written for my tastes. Less is more. Frank Portman should have had a copy editor review his work before he went to publication. It would have made for a better read. "

    " It was clever but missing that extra-special-something that makes me go ga-ga. "

    " I enjoyed the voice of this book quite a lot. The main character is funny, somewhat self-aware and definitely a teenager. The ending on the other hand, I found a little frustrating and didn't quite buy that Tom would totally give up on the mystery. "
