Overview

A few months after doctors tell him he has only a year to live, a precocious fifteen-year-old from a small town in Virginia has an intense reaction to The Catcher in the Rye. Deriving inspiration from J. D. Salinger’s narrative, Daniel Landon begins to question the intentions and authority of those around him in his own search for identity in the face of death. Tired of his cramped surroundings and parents’ alternative approaches to his treatment, he follows the footsteps of Holden Caulfield to New York City in search of the same eternal truths, only to discover the importance of home. A coming-of-age story, a love story, and a new classic, Catcher, Caught will engage the imagination of more than one generation searching for lasting values.

“Honenberger skillfully crafts her coming-of-age-at-the-end-of-life tale, balancing the pull between typical teen issues and major life decisions with subtlety and compassion.” —Booklist

“Brave, compassionate, patient, and funny…This novel will stick in my memory for a long, long time.” —George Singleton, author of The Half-Mammals of Dixie
