The Outsiders

BY: S.E Hinton


The Outsiders is about a gang of “greasers,” or poor teenagers, living on the east side of Tulsa, Oklahoma. They are constantly under attack from the rich west-side Socs, and have parties and rumbles all the time. The narrator, Ponyboy Curtis pretty much knows what to expect from his day until one of his friends takes the greaser-Soc battle too far.

why YOU should read it

The outsiders is a very firm and mysterious book. I love it mostly because of the fact of how it's very mysterious in parts of the book.The book is very worthwhile for anyone to read.In it there are many severe moments that you will be very anxious about. You really need to read it because it's one of the best books i've read this school year.
