A brief summary of my book:
A boy named Holden gets kicked out of his school, Pencey Prep because of his grades. He does not want to tell his parents so he does not want to go home for winter break. He takes a week long trip to New York, and has many adventures and meets many new people along the way.

What I thought about this book:
I gave the book full points because it was never boring. Most books are very boring in the first few chapters because the plot has not thickened but this book jumped straight into action in the first chapter.
