Teen Book Review

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Rating 4

Reviewed by Matthew, grade 10

Holden Caulfield is expelled from yet another boarding school on the criticism that he isn't "applying himself".  For desire to leave the school before Christmas break, and for fear his parents will be less understanding, Holden withdraws to the streets of New York City for an adventure... and a few surprises.  Read this book if you're looking for adventure, mystery, plot twists, and high quality details.  J.D. Salinger's book should not be missed.
