Lalo, junior, recommends Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger.
"The pandemic has hurt us in many ways but has shined light to us on what is important in life. We have forgotten what it’s like to treasure the little things in life and people. The movie “Dead Poets Society,” quotes “We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.” Quarantine was a great time for us to reconnect to those things that Robin Williams’ character notes in the movie. This book by JD Salinger, is my all time favorite, and contains much passion and struggle that teens face and overcome and hope that many consider reading this American classic."
