When Enzo finds Adelina, he's amazed by her powers... soon, the lives of these three are intertwined in ways none of them would have expected.

When a girl arrives carrying a vital message, everyone will have to pull together to make it through the maze - or face certain death.

    The Catcher in the Rye has an enduring attraction that puts it at the top of a must-read list for young adults. The cynical observations of J. D. Salinger's central character, Holden Caulfield, condemn the phony posturing and hypocrisy of those around him.

    Holden is driven by vague, unspecified angst and unhappiness and manages to get caught up in a series of uncomfortable encounters with a prostitute, her pimp, an old girlfriend and a former teacher.

    The Catcher in the Rye is as thought-provoking and compulsive as the conflicts of its central character. Recommended for readers 14+.
