Quotes from the book

"I could see boys going down under street lights because they were mean and tough and hated the world, and it was to late to tell them that there was still good in it and they wouldn't believe you if you did." page 136

This quote shows how Ponyboy grew over time and no longer is angry at the world like he use to be and he sees the positives in life.

Ponyboy

Ponyboy is a shy kid who is very different from the rest of the gang, he is very kept to himself, enjoys being alone and doesn't want to cause or start any issues.
