This is one of my favorite books of all time if not my favorite book. I love all of S.E. Hinton's books and most of all her characters. I did listen to this one this time around and have to say the audio book is not my favorite. But still, all the love for this book.
Ponyboy and his brothers, Sodapop and Darry are on their own after their parents die a car crash. But they are never alone because they have the gang with them. But the socials are always picking fights. One night it ends up with a socials' death and Ponyboy and his friend Johnny are on the run from the cops.
I love these characters so much. This book always makes me want to cry (can't say I did this time around with the audio book though). Much love to S.E. Hinton for creating these characters. So glad my teacher introduced this book to me in 6th grade. I think it definitely influenced my reading.
