Pretty much every teenager in America has read Catcher in the Rye, it’s a high school rite of passage thing. It’s my favorite book along with many other upper-middle-class white men I know. We seem to think alike. It’s the story of lost and wandering Holden Caulfield, an upper-middle-class (probably just plain upper, actually) white man who is battling with the trials of adulthood.

Holden Caulfield was the first post on Textbook, so I figured why not re-do it since it’s been a couple years. Anyways, we all had to readCatcher in the Ryein high school and we all know it’s a good book. Holden plays the part of spoiled New York City brat who bounces from school to school and calls people phonies. He has a sister named Phoebe and hates Stradlater. So imagine a rich kid bumming around New York and there you go.
