50 Great Books That Will Change Your Life
The Catcher in the Rye, by J. D. Salinger
“This novel was published when I was 14, in 1951. It became, for teenagers like me, an underground book. We hid it from our
parents and whispered about it among ourselves. It opened up a world that we hadn’t felt invited into.”
Recommended by Lois Lowry, the author of more than 25 books for children, including The Giver ($7, amazon.com) and Son ($18, amazon.com).
