The major cultural references found in this book, that I did not know or understand, were very few. The biggest one, I had just forgot, which was James Dean in Rebel without a cause. Well actually, it was James Dean overall and what he represented during his time period. Teenagers rebeling, becoming adults, all the trials and test that age group goes through.
Breakfast at Tiffany's is another one I did not know. It was a famous movie that was considered Audry Hepburns most famous role. Me being a big movie buff, had heard of it, but never actually seen it. It is now on the top of my list.
