I thought this book was hilarious most of the time. It's about a 16 year old boy who is confused about life and has no goals or inspiration to go anywhere or do anything. Holden keeps flunking out of school because he doesn't want to be a "phony" (as he would say) and who is trying to find a girl he can give the "time" to. It's a very short book with lots of activity going on. I enjoyed it.
