The Outsiders is a book that isn't anything like the ones written today. One special thing about this book is the time period is was written in. It was written in the 60's. You get to almost be transferred in the book. It was also written by a girl in the point of view of a 16 year old male. You can feel like your in it and is so beautifully written. It is definitively my most favorite book to date.
If you actually want to see it and not imagine it see the movie. The movie was made in 1983. I my opinion it really matches up with the book. There may be some errors but overall it's good.
Take in mind that this is my opinion. You may think differently from me so you may not like the book. Also this is in the point of view of a male. If you do chose to read it hopefully you end up liking it.
