What is a good hook for my Catcher in the Rye essay?

Here's my thesis:Although Holden Caulfield, like every teenage boy, tends to objectify women on account of their beauty, his desire to preserve innocence allows him to respect the women in his life.Now I need a "hook" to draw the reader in. Bleh.It could be a quotation, shocking/unusual statement, large philosophical question, anecdote or creating an interesting mood w/ description. Probably not the last one...K go!
