Holden Caulfield hates phonies, and there are plenty of them at his Pennsylvania prep school. When he finds out he's going to be expelled because of his poor grades, he decides to leave school a few days earlier than expected. But rather than going home to his judgmental parents, Holden calls his little sister, Phoebe, who is the one person to whom he still feels connected. Holden boards the train to New York and ends up in a seedy hotel, spending the next three days wandering around the city trying to figure out his life, his family, and his friendships. As he talks with everyone from nuns to prostitutes, his pivotal, sometimes gritty encounters leave Holden wondering if there is anyone in the world (besides Phoebe) who isn't a phony...
