103 Words1 Page
In teenagers’ eyes, the world is so hypocritical. They have parents who are coercing them to go to the Ivy League, MIT, University of Chicago, Caltech, or Stanford, but parents only expect excellent results without knowing anything about their children. As a result, teenagers get so much stress. They sometimes want to run away to somewhere very far away from their home or commit suicide. In The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield views the world “phony.” However, influenced by some characters, he decides to view the world more brightly. The three most influential characters to Holden are Phoebe, Allie, and Mr. Antolini.
