The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton

The outsiders is about a 14 year old greaser that is named Ponyboy. Ponyboy is one of many greasers. Ponyboy has a pal named Johnny, and Johnny is a fantastic character. I really like how the author made up these characters. Ponyboy has two older brothers, one is named Sodapop which is 16 years of age, and their oldest brother Darrel usually called  "Darry" which is 20 years old. Darry has a harsh personality, but Sodapop is about the opposite.


Ponyboy Curtis and Johnny Cade run away together after a situation with some family. While Ponyboy and Johnny were away they did some heroic things, including saving several kids in a burning church. There are many problems that happen in the novel "The Outsiders," such as Johnny putting his life at risk to rescue several children. 


I have learned to try new things and I might become a better person than I was before. I have also learned that many people come out of there shells and do some very heroic things.


I would definitely recommend this book for several people to read, I would recommend this book because even though I don't really like reading, I loved this book. I think the author did a fantastic job on writing this novel. This novel has so many events that have act of heroism in many characters. Many of the characters have there up and downs with each other, but at the end of the day they all treat each other like family.
