The book The Catcher in the Rye, written by J.D Salinger, is about a boy named Holden. He was kicked out of a school named Pencey Prep. After he got kicked out of school he couldn’t go home because his parents would be mad at him. So throughout his adventure he met people that where phonies but not everyone he met was a phony. He doesn’t like people that were are phonies because he always ended up lying to them about something.
In conclusion the author J.D. Salinger wrote The Catcher in the Rye to help all of those teens going through the rough transitional period into adulthood, he wanted them to know that they aren’t alone and they aren’t the only ones feeling like this. Holden made the mistake of isolating himself and whenever he felt like finally turning himself in but he would change his mind much too quickly. He was very indecisive and wouldn’t plan too far into the future. If he was to have stayed at Pencey or gone straight home this story wouldn’t have been made, but then again that’s the purpose of it, to share this story and make it relatable to all teens of all different periods of time.
