Another book that I introduced to some of you was The Catcher In The Rye by JD Salinger. This book became a cult classic, and was in fact banned for a long time in schools and libraries. It is my opinion that most of you would really enjoy this book. Teenagers through the last few decades have felt as though the book was speaking directly to them. There is inherent in the book that special element of madness that any adolescent immediately recognizes!
I have included here an essay on the book that I once wrote. This is my challenge to you: after reading the essay, and knowing what you (should!) know about thesis statements and topic sentences, can you guess the question that the essay was answering?
Also, if any of you were to get round to reading the book, it would be interesting for the rest of your friends if you were to share your comments here.
