This is the funniest account of high school I've read in a long time. Rarely does a book make me laugh out loud, but King Dork did several times throughout. I like how there are several interlocking conspiracies and mysteries. It makes you want to keep reading. However, there are sexual topics in this book. For example, the main character's derogatory nickname is Chi-Mo, which is short for child molester(but, for the record, he does not molest children, people just say that to make fun of him). There is also oral sex, teen sex, and an entire illegal teen porn operation run by a teacher . Despite all of that, this book is absolutely brilliant. I love that the main character is involved with rock and roll and has a band with his friend Sam Hellerman. Tom is somewhat of a hero in the end, which I also like. I don't think I'd give this book to anybody under 13, but for teenagers, this book is great!
