The Outsiders
The Outsiders | SE Hinton
A heroic story of friendship and belonging No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that he's got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. And when it comes to the Socs—a vicious gang of rich kids who enjoy beating up on "greasers" like him and his friends—he knows that he can count on them for trouble. But one night someone takes things too far, and Ponyboy's world is turned upside down... Written over forty-five years ago, The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published. "The Outsiders transformed young-adult fiction from a genre mostly about prom queens, football players and high school crushes to one that portrayed a darker, truer world." —The New York Times "Taut with tension, filled with drama." —The Chicago Tribune "[A] classic coming-of-age book." —Philadelphia Daily News "What it's like to live lonely and unwanted and cornered by circumstance...There is rawness and violence here, but honest hope, too." —National Observer A New York Herald Tribune Best Teenage Book A Chicago Tribune Book World Spring Book Festival Honor Book An ALA Best Book for Young Adults Winner of the Massachusetts Children's Book Award

MellieAntoinette OMG I‘m on ch5 and was just thinking the same thing. This one‘s got family history though. My dad went to WRHS w/ Hinton and lived in the “Greasers” meighborhood Hinton interviewed. It‘s my one link to bookish fame! Spent my summers at the same drive in as Ponyboy, too! 2w

I missed the boat on reading S.E Hinton‘s The Outsiders as a high schooler, but after Episode 56 of my podcast, I‘m now officially caught up! We talk about the pop culture resonance of “Stay gold, Ponyboy,” Hinton‘s fascinating portrayal of masculinity, her journey from (literal) teen to publishing sensation, and the story‘s still relevant representation of marginalized teens. Link to listen in bio!

My son isn‘t a reader; he‘s a gamer. But he‘s read The Outsiders three times this year. He likes it that much, and that makes this mama happy 😄 Hope everyone has had a great Monday! Mine went so smoothly at work, I‘m in a great mood! 😊

The outsiders was a book I read a while ago but if I recall I really enjoyed it. For those who enjoy realistic fiction and from a point of vue from the mid sixties this is a novel for you. It tells the story of friendship, hardship, gangs, and what life was like in the sixties. I highly recommend the outsiders for anyone who enjoys classics or simply an enjoyable, thought provoking read.

Tough is the same as rough; tuff means cool, sharp - like a tuff looking Mustang or a tuff record. In our neighbourhood both are compliments.

I find it such a privilege to teach high school students and to influence them to love reading as much as I do. Cannot wait to teach my year 8 kiddies this novel for the next 10 weeks and compare it to the film! Watch this space! #englishteachersoflitsy

Curiouser_and_curiouser I studied this in high school too, and as some of the actors were all part of the brat pack at the time I was wrapped, but i did love the story too. Theres so much more to learn when you have to break it down instead of just reading it through once. Great novel! 4w
Thewanderer92 @Curiouser_and_curiouser I agree! And I can‘t wait to show my students how much books lose context and content when transferred to a different media form. 4w

Humor for today:

My student comes up to me right before his final exam, and says, “You know the Socs, in The Outsiders? Apparently it‘s pronounced ‘Soashes‘...”

I read the entire story out loud in class, and I‘d been calling them the “Socks” 🤦🏻‍♀️

Struggles of reading an unfamiliar word in a book 😂

rubyslippersreads I always knew how to pronounce it, because that‘s what we called the snooty kids in school, but until I read this book, I never thought about how to spell it. 😊 1mo

Just finished this gem! I taught this for my summer school English session. It was both my and my student‘s first time reading it!

So many moments of 😮 throughout this book. The ending had us both like 🤯! I personally loved the assortment of characters and their developments, as well as the theme of “Don‘t judge a book by it‘s cover”.

Stay gold, everyone. 💛🍃🍂

I‘ve lost track of how many copies I have of this book. I will never forget the first time I read it. I was home sick and this was the assigned reading for my Novels class. I read it in one sitting and started all over and read it again. By the time I got back to school I practically had the entire novel memorized. Even though there have been many books I have loved, this one will always hold a special place in my heart. I have multiple editions.

I just can‘t with The Master & Margarita. I‘ve given it 100+ pages, and I can‘t attach to it.
This is my SECOND 1967 book I‘m DNF‘ing 😳
But I‘m running - not walking - to The Outsiders, eager to finally read this classic.

Here‘s hoping the 3rd time is the charm ❤️

Freespirit I didn't finish M& M either 5mo
AlaMich It seems like a “love it or hate it” deal with M&M. I bought the Penguin Deluxe edition but haven‘t read it yet, and I‘m a bit nervous, given all wildly differing opinions. 5mo
Sweettartlaura @AlaMich It‘s not bad - it‘s definitely intriguing. It‘s just something you have to dedicate yourself to, and right now that‘s not happening for me 🤷🏻‍♀️. I‘m gonna try again, but it goes to the side for now. 4mo

This story about greasers vs. socs holds up well. Ponyboy is a greaser, loyal to his brothers and crew, but willing to look beyond labels and question the assumptions everyone in his town makes about each other. Nice depiction of male friendship between Ponyboy and Johnny. Pretty impressive that the author was only 16 when she started this novel. Now I need to see the movie. “Stay gold, ponyboy.”

I listened to this one on audio and it's been a decade or more since I had read through it. One of my favorite books as a teen, I just love Ponyboy's story and struggles. I remember loving to escape into a world worse than my own with terrors I'd never faced. The message is so clear and I just love all the characters so much. I've watched the movie a million times as well and may want to rewatch it again soon. #litsyatoz #o

So I am super late to the game here, but I just found out this week that SE Hinton is a woman. Susan Eloise Hinton wrote The Outsiders when she was only 19 years old in 1967. I find this extremely impressive for the time, especially given the success of the book.
