The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger is a book that people usually love or hate.

Holden Caulfield has just been kicked out of another boarding school. He has a couple of days left before Christmas break when he will return to his parents in shame.

But Holden does not want to wait to leave. He decides to leave early and spend a couple of days in NYC before he goes home. He does not want to arrive before the letter from the school.

I can see why this book is a classic and how the writing style - written as if Holden is talking - would appeal to teens.
