Check It Out: The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

Apr 24, 2018

Imagine walking down the streets of Tulsa, Oklahoma on a warm summer’s day. You can hear music from jukeboxes playing and can see people hopping in and out of Chevy Corvairs and Ford Mustangs. But the one thing that catches your attention the most is two groups of boys. One group is nicer looking while the other group is more rad tad.In the book The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton these two groups are known as the Socs and Greasers. You get a familiar understanding on the rivalry between these two groups while also being introduced to main character Ponyboy Michael Curtis.
