Classic Lit Plots Most Likely to Happen in 2018

The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger

I’m sorry to say that we will most likely not be free from Holden Caulfields in 2018. In fact, it's inevitable that, among the 7 billion of us occupying this planet, some rich, neglectful parents will send away a sweet child to boarding school—only to be shocked 13 years later when they once again meet with their estranged son and find that he isn't everything they'd hoped. Imagine the surprise when this innocent kid returns with a mind-blowing lack of self-awareness and a selfish streak that is equally hard to comprehend in its extent and scope. There's probably a proverbial army of horrible 17-year-old man-babies out there at this very moment, tormenting people with their obnoxiousness, whining about their good fortune, and harassing women on Tinder.
