When he and Johnny befriend Cherry Valance, a nice Soc girl who sees things the way Ponyboy does, things start to go bad. Cherry's boyfriend, Bob, finds them after Pony runs away from home, and Johnny does something he never imagined he'd have the courage to do... but you'l have to read the book yourself! Something that may surprise you about this novel? It was written by a 15-year-old girl! And it's one of my favorite books, which is surprising because I usually like stories with more than one female character, haha!
The Outsiders was made into a movie in 1983, starring some people you may have heard of, including Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, and Tom Cruise. Hope you enjoy this classic must-read! I also wanted to mention NaNoWriMo in this post. I am currently participating in this 50,000 word one-month challenge! You should go check out Ariel's column to find out more about it. Don't forget to read Violet On The Runway for the Dekoposh Book Club, and have a good week!
