As he reflects back on his final day at Pencey he says: “ They kicked me out. ...I was flunking four subjects and not applying myself at all. They gave me frequent warnings to start applying myself...but I didn’t do it” (Salinger 4). The school is throwing Holden out because he is not what they want to represent to potential students. They want to show examples of fine, upstanding young men, instead of giving off the image of the failing, confused young man.
“Farrington hoped Mr. Alleyne would not discover that the two letters were missing”(85). These letters were supposed to be done before he left work.

It was a huge struggle to me but I managed to lose weight just to feel good about myself. In my opinion, people should not be judged by their looks and everybody should be happy about themselves.
Although in some cases a person becomes so tensed that he gives up, but in most cases difficult situation brings out the best a man can offer. Many of the famous personalities sought strength through adverse situations. There are examples of children who, under difficult situation, found courage to change their lives.

He felt more rejected in life throughout primary school and high school where he didn’t have any friends or have a social life besides paying people to come to his apartment which influenced him to begin to drink heavily. According to the social control theory If Jeffrey had made friends in school or when he joined the army or any close relationships this would have prevented him from committing all those crimes.

“You think the teacher will notice that we are missing from the class.” It was totally weird for having Mohan with us. It was his first day he ever skipped an English class. His attendance was very less comparing to all of us who were sitting there. He tries lots but can’t able to get good mark in the class somehow. I guess he gave up after the entire struggle and hard work he is being doing in the class and ended up with just 61% overall.
