from the Catcher In The Rye

Jane was a close friend of Holden several summers before. Holden frequently reminisces about spending time with her. Jane is one of the few people whom Holden speaks about in entirely positive terms; he is in love with her yet lacks the emotional maturity to pursue a relationship with her. Much like he views his sister Phoebe, Holden sees Jane with a sense of purity and innocence.
