The Outsiders

by Hinton, S E

"The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton is a poignant coming-of-age novel set in the 1960s. It revolves around the lives of two rival gangs, the working-class Greasers and the affluent Socs. The story is narrated by Ponyboy Curtis, a Greaser who grapples with issues of identity and belonging. Through Ponyboy's eyes, the novel delves into themes of social class, friendship, loyalty, and the devastating consequences of violence. When a tragic event occurs, Ponyboy and his fellow Greasers are forced to confront the harsh realities of their existence, challenging their perceptions of the world and their place in it. As the story unfolds, Hinton highlights the power of compassion, understanding, and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

On Oct 7, 2014, Anonymous said
The Outsiders has been required reading in all the schools I have taught. It's dated, but it can be tied into bullying, which is a hot topic now. It also helps that you can reward the kids with watching the movie after reading the book and taking the AR test.
