Relationship with HoldenEdit
Holden says he sat next to Selma once on the school bus from Agerstown, and he struck up a conversation with her. Holden likes her as a person, especially because she doesn't brag and pretend like her father is a really great guy, in fact Holden seems to think that she probably thinks her dad is a slob too. Holden feels a bit sorry for her and Holden says that she is a pretty nice girl.
