The Outsiders – S. E. Hinton

the-outsiders-by-s-e-hintonThis remarkable coming-of-age novel was written when the author was only 16, and although it is now somewhat dated, it is also a timeless classic,  Its theme of the haves against the have nots still rings true today.  Two rival gangs in the 1960’s, the Socs and the Greasers, are divided along socioeconomic lines.  When a Greaser boy falls for a Soc girl, gang warfare erupts and teens die. This is a sad but poignant book that is so well written its hard to put down.
