The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton

Kendralicious' SSR project

Realistic Fiction

Ponyboy Curtis: - (Dynamic) the youngest member of the family. He is an orphan and lives with his 2 brothers, Sodapop and Darry.

Sodapop Curtis: - (Static) the second member of their Curtis household, High school dropout who works at a gas station.

Darry Curtis: - (Dynamic) the father of the household. He turned down a college scholarship to support Pony and Soda

Jonny Cage: - (Dynamic) A troubled child who’s only true family is the gang and not his actual family who either abuses him or yells at him every single day.

The Problem. Conflict.

The problem in the book is they can’t find who they truly are. They have an adventure and wild ride to find who they are. There is more than 1 conflict and 1 is external (The killing) and one is internal.


I would recomaned this book for anyone really. It is a great story that has drama, action, and suspense. It's very shocking and entertaing. Don't forget there is a movie.
