Book Review on “The Outsiders” by: S.E Hinton pgs.192

“They grew up on the outside of society. They weren’t looking for a fight. They were looking to belong.”

The book The Outsiders is about a group of gang members who call themselves the Greasers.The Greasers get there name from there hair always being greased back.The main characters of this story are Ponyboy Curtis,Sodapop,and Darry and they are all apart of the Greaser gang. These are there nicknames of course and they’re all brothers.Ponyboy is the narrator of this story and Sodapop and him are tooken care of by the the oldest brother Darrel a.k.a Darry because they have recently lost there parents due to a automobile accident.

The Greasers have a rivalry with another gang who call themselves the Socials a.k.a the Socs.The greasers and the socs have always had a problem.The greasers are more of the poor group and the socs all have money and they live on opposite sides of the city.Every time they see one another they fight or try to kill each other.So you probably know whats going to happen. The greasers and the socs get into it and three of the socs end up dead.The police then accuse Ponyboy as one of the killers and he has to go to court. In court they realize that he does have a legal guardian and cause something else.

I really liked this book a lot.It kept me on my toes at all times I never knew what was going to happen next.It was very interesting because it was written by a teenager about teenagers.I didn’t know that things really happen like this within gangs and its all true that its kind of scary.This book also was mad into a movie.
This is a very mature book that has cursing in it.I wouldn’t recommend this book to kids under the age of 14 just because of what the book consist of.This book has a lot of character and it is actually very entertaining. I enjoy this book a lot and would read it again.

What am I reading?

The book that I am going to start to read tomorrow is “The Outsiders” by S.E Hinton . I haven’t started reading it yet because I am very busy and I haven’t had time.Honestly I really haven’t started to read it because I didn’t feel like reading yet.Reading isn’t really my thing.So the book has to be very interesting for me to even give it a try.I picked this book because my cousin told me it was a good book and we like most of the same things.So I said why not give it a try.

On the bright side I had a great weekend.I went to Atlanta, Georgia to see my God parents and god sister with my mom.We had a great time.We went to The Battle of the Bands.If you don’t know what that is its when HBCU marching bands compete.I never been before and it was really amazing. Neyo was even there to perform.There were so many people there.It took a lot for us to get there and it was extremely cold outside.My friend is a dancer at BCU and she was there performing in the Battle of the Bands so I got to see her.

After the Battle of the Bands we all went to dinner at this restaurant called Pappadeax. They serve seafood which is really good.If you ever go to Atlanta go there there food is amazing.We all enjoyed dinner and had lots of good laughs.

I love Atlanta a lot and I never realized even though Ive been there a thousand times.I actually am thinking about moving there for school.I think I would enjoy it a lot and it would open a lot of opportunities for me considering that I am a dancer.Plus I really want to go to medical school in Atlanta. Hopefully Emory since my God mom works there.
