The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger (Jan 1, 1919 - Jan 27, 2010)

Happy birthday, Mr. Salinger! For more unique teen characters fighting the phoniness of the adult world, try these…

Into The Wild by Jon Krakauer for a real-life Holden who went in search of adventure and a meaningful life, and the decisions that led to his death

Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis for a teen struggling not to lose himself in the nihilism, excess, and emptiness of 1980s Los Angeles

Ghost World by Daniel Clowes for two witty female characters at odds with vapid ’90s culture, who drift apart as they transition into adulthood

Vernon God Little by DBC Pierre for a hapless teen swept up in a Texas school massacre - a satirical, blackly comic critique of modern America 

I was so worried about making sure this list did my favourite book justice, it took me 10 weeks to write. Enjoy.
