Mrs. Hinton’s The Outsiders was a delight to read. While I might have enjoyed it, I must disagree with who the author has chosen to base her book on and here’s why. While Hinton chose to write about a young man doomed to repeat his mistake multiple times until eventually, he sees the error of his ways. We see in the beginning Ponyboy admits that he’s not to walk alone merely because the Soc (Socials) will jump any Greaser this, of course, does not deter Ponyboy as he makes this same blunder throughout the book. Eventually, causing tension among his family and the death of three people. I do believe Hinton had two good choices there is Johnny Cage an abused teen and Dallas “Dally” Winston a hardened criminal.
