I know that story lines have changed, kids have changed, but we still have socs and greasers in every school.  We still have the prettiest girl and the bully.  I read this book when I was in the 8th grade over 29 years ago.  It was got me away from the Nancy Drew books.  Now 29 years later my children are reading it and they are getting the same message out of it that I did.  It was nice to actually have some mutual ground to discuss with my children and how it relates to …

This book "The outsiders" is about a small "youth-gang" called the Greasers. They have rival's call "Socs", they are a social "gang" pretty much jock's. This book grabs a hold of you and pulls you into the life of the characters.   Characters:   Most are also in other S.E Hinton Books   Ponyboy Curtis -  The novel’s fourteen-year-old main character      Darrel Curtis - Ponyboy’s oldest …

Mediocre, but entertaining. "The Outsiders," should tide over those that thought there should have been a "Grease 3."

The most memorable book from my teen years, oh how I cried! And now my son read it in middle school and liked it too. Timeless emotions!

Another book that I was required to read in junior high and one that I have come to love very much.

read this book in Middle school. It was okay. I am always a bit skeptical of the books that we have to read in school:)

another one of my favorites. more up there than others though. most teenage boys can relate a lot to theses kids, even if its just in there head, they feel for them. the epic journey of two boys living alone isolated like that because of a system that would just see a "greaser", when all they did was defend themselves. i love this tale, dally is my favorite, stay gold.

Classic coming of age and friends are everything book. A high school top pick, all the students love it--especially at a school with gang prominence like the school i teach at. The movie is also a classic.

this was a favorite and I agree with sk8r901, you really feel like you are drawn into the book, it becomes your reality!

The 12-year-old version of myself was quite taken with this book. OK, I was obsessed. Plus, the movie had a ton of smokin' hot dudes. Stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold.

I love this book. It tells a great story. This was an reading assignment for my high school English class and I'm really glad it was. I've read it a few times since then and seen the movie too. Very good.
