Bridget writes the following about The Outsiders :
I think this book was one of the best I have even read. The movie was awesome too! I cried when Johnny died and I thought it was so touching that Dally died to be with Johnny in heaven. This book was about two kinds of groups. The Greasers and the Socs. The Socs are rich and have everything made for them supposidly. They have nice cars and girls. Greasers however are the more don't have alot of money. Ponyboy and Johnny run away. They go to a old church and then Dally comes and gets them. All of a sudden when their down the road they see the church on fire and little kids are trapped inside. Ponyboy and Johnny goes and rescues them. POnyboy gets out in time before the church collapses. Johnny however gets hit with falling tiber on his back. Dally goes in to help Johnny and he kind of gets hurt. Johnny is in the hospital critical and Dally just has to spend a few days in there. Then there is a big Soc vs. Greasers fight. The Greasers win. Dally shows up. Then after the fight Dally and Ponyboy go to se Johnny. Johnny dies right in front of them. Then Dally goes crazy and robs a store and is being chased by cops. Then the cops have him surrounded and "The Gang" comes and see Dally shoot himself. It was a sad book. When Ponyboy goes back to school the teacher tells him to write anything. Then he writes the Outsiders.
