The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
When it comes to absolute classics, there aren't many more widely known than The Catcher in the Rye. We feel wholeheartedly that everyone should read Catcher in their teenage years, as it perfectly encapsulates the whole "growing up" thing for so many kids. That being said, the ending feels kind of sudden, and not complete, as though there should have been another chapter there. It doesn't feel quite as final as we'd like.
