Growing up is hard. How about trying to fit in Holden’s shoes? The Catcher in the Rye chronicles the events, retold by the anti-hero Holden Caulfield. After Holden flunked out of school, he decides to explore New York for a while until Christmas as he encounters people in hopes of finding his purpose in life. In the novel, Holden’s sporadic tendencies can be linked to his fleeting childhood as the call for maturation gets louder; his contrasting reality and blissful ignorance weighs down Holden physically and psychologically in three ways: Allie’s death, encounter with Sunny, and Phoebe’s carousel ride.
Everything is new to him, which makes him even more lost and confused. It all starts when Charlie 's only friend from middle school committed suicide; since then Charlie 's been lonely and poignant. Additionally, his 'favorite person in the world ' Aunt Helen died in a car crash prior to the story. Just like he blames himself for the suicide of his friend Michael, he blames himself for his Aunt 's death too and would rather not talk about it. Charlie 's high school life begins solo, until he meets Sam and Patrick – seniors – who help him cope with these issues and introduce him to the world of good music, drugs and other things.
It is written from Holden’s point of view and it is about a week full of conflicts which change his whole life from that point on. Although he thinks his life is full of phonies, he tries to make his way around them and continue living with his parents and sister in New York after his brother died. In The Catcher in The Rye, J.D. Salinger conveys the idea of being immature and the interests of this teenage boy that fears for his future and is curious about being an adult. Holden is not acting like an adult throughout the book, every time something unusual happens he thinks about killing the person behind the event.
As illustrated in the Catcher in the Rye and the Perks of being a Wallflower, teenagers are generally different from how they appear to be. The protagonists of both of the books – two teenagers named Holden and Charlie – struggle with their inner dark memories. Holden’s classmate commits suicide and his brother dies because of leukemia. Charlie’s best friend commits suicide and his brother dies of leukemia as well. Holden’s and Charlie’s traumas can not be compared with each other’s trauma’s difficulty and harshness because they have difficult and incomparable childhood traumas.
After getting hooked on the stress-relieving effects of the drugs administered to them, then looked to marijuana to help even more. Once the marijuana period wore off, soldiers began taking heroin which really caused issues after coming back home. Statistics show that at one point or another around the time of the war, at least 20% of U.S. soldiers in Vietnam were on one or both of these drugs. Even in the book, The Things They Carried, one man always carried “a hefty amount of marijuana with him” (O’Brien). However, once he died, his fellow platoon members that had never previously been mentioned of doing drugs smoked all of his weed while waiting on the helicopter to arrive just because of the sheer harshness of watching their buddy get shot and drop dead.

Later Sam comes back when Benny is out and he and Joon run away, taking the bus. Joon has a psychotic break on the bus and is taken away by the ambulance and admitted into a group home. Benny overcomes his anger towards Sam and they team up to try and sneak into the group home to see Joon and take her home. There is never a specification of to what mental illness Joon has, but there are many hints here and there that show that she does suffer from paranoid schizophrenia.

So a bully named Stilson teases him by calling him Third.
I do not believe that Len 's parents thought he was having problems, or there were voices talking to him. However, I believe that Len 's mother sensed something because she had him start writing in the journal. Another thing to consider was Len 's father, who Len did not have a very good relationship with. His father was always hurting his mother physically, drank high amounts of alcohol, and liked to control the family. I believe this had something to do with why Len became an active shooter at school.
