Your Dork for the day...

If you enjoy reading or writing Young Adult novels or know someone who does, I've got a good one for you. It's also a good read for anyone who likes/hates/or feels indifferent about the classic teenage angst fest, Catcher in the Rye.

The book is called King Dork and it's the first effort by a Bay Area musician (the Mr. T Experience) named Frank Portman.

It's a great read but not perfect. The last few chapters get a bit soggy and the main characters are high school freshmen who are a bit too wise for fourteen--especially when it comes to knowledge of 70s punk rock--but I still enjoyed the heck out of it (so there is no more heck remaining).
