The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
My name is Elizabeth. I love reading, and my favorite book is My Sister’s Keeper. I am in the 8th grade and enjoy dance.
The Outsiders is a book written by S.E. Hinton. It is 192 pages, so it’s a fairly quick read, but it is super good. I read it in one night because I couldn’t put it down.
The Outsiders is a must read for kids and teens. The plot is about some greasers who live in Tulsa, Oklahoma during the year 1965. They feud with a group called the Soc’s (pronounced soshes). They are the rich kids in town, and they aren’t exactly nice to the greasers. The main character Ponyboy is who we see the book told through. He goes on an adventure with a few other greasers to escape the mistakes that he has made. The plot sucks you in, and you get to escape the real world while you read. The book doesn’t have a huge presence of adults, so you can be a little care free when you read The Outsiders.
This book is the best that I have ever read, and I highly recommend it. The Outsiders will stick with you for the rest of your life, and it will hackle you see the world differently. The story if The Outsiders has also been made into a movie, so when you finish with the book, you can watch the movie!
