really liked it

Wow!! Ms Hinton wrote this coming of age book when she was 16 ..way back in the 60's. (I graduated in '66 by the way). What young teen, Ponyboy, goes through most of us can identify with..friends, family (our own and our friends..functional and disfunctional) love, good vs evil, and death. The dated slang threw me off at first..ie: getting high meant having a few beers !!! Think you will "dig" this book if you are a greaser or a soc !!
