Teen Book Review

Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Rating 3

Reviewed by Alex, grade 9

The book "Catcher in the Rye" is about an adolescent boy who is going to be dropped by his school and spends his time in New York to review his life.  I would recommend this title to teenagers and adults based on the book's mature language and vocabulary.  I could relate to Holden Caulfield, the main character, because of the people he meets at his older schools act like people at modern schools.  I did not enjoy reading the book because Holden Caulfield always complains about his life.
