Summary: One of the first real young adult novels written, the story follows Ponyboy, his brothers, and his friends as they try to find their place in the world. The Greasers vs. Socs battle rages on and Ponyboy is stuck right in the middle of it.
What I Thought: This is one of those books that someone slipped through my education. Maybe because of its age; it was published in 1967. I do not think I had even really heard of it until it was assigned for my Family in Literature course this spring.
I guess I liked it ok. I really struggle to connect to stories about adolescent boys. What can I say? I never was one. I don't understand them.
