It was banned by many high schools, and is probaly proclaimed the most banned book in the last century...

"'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."
