Everyone can relate to the awkwardness of Holden Caulfield. Growing up is hard when no one is there for you. After being kicked out of school, Holden's family sends him to an all boys boarding school, where he rooms with an extremely conceited boy. Quickly, he gets kicked out of here too. On the up side, Holden can't wait to see his little sister, but he's scared of facing his parents. Sneaking into his own house, Holden tells Phoebe she can't tell anyone where he is or where he's going. Leaving school, Phoebe tries to run away with him. Holden has to grow up and realize the things happening to him are not the end of the world. The Catcher In The Rye is also a coming of age book. I recommend to everyone to pick up a copy of this great read.
Thankfully, this book is no longer banned in schools. I honestly cannot see why it ever was. How do all of you feel about the controversy over The Catcher In The Rye? Give me your opinions. :)
