I realized that there are a lot of book worms out there reading blog post day after day about people's favorite books. So, today I wanted to bring you a book review and explanation of my favorite book: "The Outsiders."
Later, a fight escalates to unbelievable heights, leaving some of the greasers on the lam from the law.
Now that you have a mini-summary, here are the reasons I like this book so much:
NARRATIVE FORMAT IS WELL-WRITTEN
IT TAKES A SERIOUS LOOK AT CLASSISM
My middle school was a lot like the one described in "The Outsiders." Less than half of the student body was from the poorer side of town. The rest lived in lavish houses by the lake and took their boat out every weekend when it was warm. You could tell that there was some separation between socioeconomic classes in my middle school. I think I love this book so much because I sometimes felt empathy for Ponyboy.
IT SHOWS THAT FAMILY CAN BE MORE THAN BLOOD
Growing up, and still to this day, I have had friends who are family. If one of us is hurting, we are both hurting. If one of us needs advice, we are a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, and a giver of sound advice. I love this about this book.
If you haven't checked this book out, you need to! It is such an easy read, and a really great story if I do say so myself! I hope you will let me know what you think of my book recommendation. Thanks so much for reading!
