Rachel Eng Catcher in the Rye Introduction Friendships - Intro Friendships - Holden - Holden doesn't connect with many people with the exception of Phoebe and Allie

“If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it’s a game, all right- I’ll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren’t any hot-shots, then what’s a game about it? Nothing.” (12 Salinger). How do you choose a friend?

- someone that has the same interests
