Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles
Holden is not a phony. I do not think he is quite stable mentally. He thinks that all adults are phony and children are the only ones not phony, until they grow up to be adults. Holden wants to save the children from becoming phony once they grow into adults.
