The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Outsiders:

Growing up outside society, in Oklahoma.

My favorite S.E. Hinton quote from the book:

"Just don't forget that some of us watch the sunset too."

Questions to ponder while reading The Outsiders:

How divided was your high school?

Where did you feel like you fit it?

My review of The Outsiders:

A literary rite of passage.

I loved the book.

The ending hurt my heart.
