Review: The Outsiders

The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton

I want to know why I was never required to read this book in school? It is freaking amazing!

Another blogger friend of mine posted about her copy of The Outsiders and it intrigued me. Then I asked my husband about the book and he said he read it and it was awesome. So I knew I had to give this book a shot. I am so glad I did. I fell in love with Ponyboy and what he was going through. 

We have the greasers and the socs. They live on opposites of town and can not stand each other. They all fight to fight but in reality they are just the same. 

One night changes everything in Ponyboy's world and we see how he changes. You can tell that the greasers are a family and will be there for each other and take of one another. 

I love the family dynamics that is within Ponyboy's family. His brothers want the best for him and that is awesome.

The characters are unique and memorable. This book was not hard to read and understand it was simple. I think I need to own this book just because. I think I will be finding myself reading it again. This is one story that should still be required to read!
