Emily P. writes the following about The Outsiders :

My name is Emily and at Les Bois junior High we are writing book reviews on The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. We are writing these reviews so we understand what we read. In this book I leaned a couple of lessons. I have will have a favorite character, and there are a few sad parts. This book is one of the best books I have read.
S.E. Hinton put many life lessons in this book. I learned not to judge a person or book by the way it looks. People should treat you the way they want to be treated. I think that people may look different on the outside but at the same time be different on the inside. The soc?s did not like the greasers because of how they looked.
My favorite character Sodapop. He is tough and always cares about Ponyboy. He worries about Ponyboy if he is late or runs away. He never shares his feeling and keeps them bundled up inside. Every body thinks he is the good-looking one. Soda was scared that they might go to the boy?s home. Soda and Darry are also very happy of Ponyboy being on honor roll and a good runner.
Finally I think that the saddest part in the book is when and how dally died. After Johnny died Dally?s hart dropped. Dally ran out of his room and robbed a store. Then went and called the gang and said go to the lot. They got to the lot and Dally pulled something black out of his pocket and the cops shot him down. He died before he hit the ground.
If I were to rate this book on a one ?five star scale I would give it a five because this is a very good book. I would recommend this book to anyone in prison so the would learn more life lessons. This book could be in any time period like 2004 because nobody is perfect and we are still using slang words.
