Catcher in the rye is about a kid named Holden Cualfield going through life over a few days period.
It was banned by many high schools, and is probaly proclaimed the most banned book in the last century...
It's full of refernces to "Sex", lot's of swearing, and a few refernces to "Drugs", and full of "Alchohal"

Quote from Catcher in the Rye---
"'You know what I'd like to be? I mean if it'd be my goddamn choice'"?
'What? stop swearing.'
'You know that song, "if I body catch a body comin' through the rye? I'd like -'
'It's "If a body meet a body coming through the rye"!' old Phoebe said 'It's a poem. By Robert Burns.'
'I know it's a poem by Robert Burns."
She was right, though. It is "If a body meet a body coming through the rye." I didn't know it then, though.
"I thought it was "If a body meet a body,"' I said 'Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're runni ng and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the CATCHER IN THE RYE and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy."
Old Phoebe didn't say anything for a long time."
