  1. Wuthering Heights is a novel by Emily Brontë, written between October 1845 and June 1846,[1] and published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. It was her first and only published novel: she died aged 30 the following year. The decision to publish came after the success of her sister Charlotte's novel, Jane Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights, and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850.[2] Wuthering Heights is the eponymous farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors where the story unfolds.

    1. The Catcher in the Rye is a 1951 novel by J. D. Salinger.[3] Originally published for adults, it has since become popular with adolescent readers for its themes of teenage angst and alienation.[4][5] It has been translated into almost all of the world's major languages.[6] Around 250,000 copies are sold each year with total sales of more than 65 million books.[7] The novel's protagonist and antihero, Holden Caulfield, has become an icon for teenage rebellion.[8] The novel was included on Time's 2005 list of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923,[9] and it was named by Modern Library and its readers as one of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. It has been frequently challenged in the United States and other countries for its liberal use of profanity and portrayal of sexuality.[10][11][12] It also deals with complex issues of identity, belonging, connection, and alienation.

      1. A Clockwork Orange is a dystopian novella by Anthony Burgess published in 1962. Set in a not-so-distant future society that has a culture of extreme youth violence, the novel's teenage anti-hero gives a first-person narration about his violent exploits and his experiences with state authorities intent on reforming him. It is an exploration of human violence and human free will to choose between good and evil and the cost to the individual of restraining it. It is an experiment with language, written in a Russian-influenced argot called "Nadsat". It may be a satire of youth subcultures that arose in 1950s Anglo-America. According to Burgess, the novel was a jeu d'esprit written in just three weeks.

        1. The Great Gatsby is a 1925 novel written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald that follows a cast of characters living in the fictional town of West Egg on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. The story primarily concerns the young and mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and his quixotic passion for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. Considered to be Fitzgerald's magnum opus, The Great Gatsby explores themes of decadence, idealism, resistance to change, social upheaval, and excess, creating a portrait of the Jazz Age that has been described as a cautionary tale regarding the American Dream
