In this book, Holden is kicked out of school for lack of effort, thus being the fourth school he has been kicked out of, Holden decides that he does not want to go straight home to give his family disappointing news once again. Instead, Holden decides to take his time on his way home. He stayed at hotels, went to bars, ordered a prostitute, met new people and caught up with some old friends.

Holden wasn 't really shown any support from his parents, unlike Claudia, only his siblings. Holden’s parents were considering getting him psychoanalyzed after Holden’s brother died, but they sent him to boarding school instead.
