The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
Reviewed by Shanta
The Outsiders is one of the most inspirational books I have ever read!
Ponyboy is a fourteen-year old boy who depends on his older brothers and his friends Two- Bit and Johnny. However, one day a group of Socs (a gang of rich kids) who enjoy beating up greasers (members of a gang of poor kids) like him, try to beat him up. Ponyboy counts on his friend to help him out, but on that very day, Johnny takes things too far, and both of them know that life will never be the same. I recommend this book to boys and girls who enjoy books that describe how life is like and how you have to be ready to take up challenges. I would not recommend this book to boys and girls who are younger than eleven since it portrays the life of gangs and uses some inappropriate language. The Outsiders is a true, hopeful, and inspirational book that I will always remember.
