Timeless

I first read "The Outsiders" about 50 years ago. It remains a great book, timeless in its depiction of young people struggling to grow to maturity and understanding while a virtual whirlwind of competing societal pressures rages around them. It is a classic that I would recommend to anyone - young and old.

a great book which my favorite movie was based on!

I LOVE this movie, and since it is quite similar to the book, the book is very enjoyable as well! This is a book all about the rich kids (soc's) and the kids from the wrong side of the tracks (greasers)...how they relate to each other, how they are alike and different in more ways then they'd imagine and how their lives are more intertwined with each other's than they realized. Fun, quick , light read!
