Remarkable perseverance, self-motivation, and help from unexpected places converge to bring some (though not all) youthful dreams to fruition, luckily with fingers and limbs (pretty much) intact.

With a protagonist not so appealing as Ponyboy, this novel was not as engaging as The Outsiders. Oblique climactic scene was not fully realized, and resolution also fell flat. Fun to read for comparison though.

Very clever, full of little surprises and entertaining pop-culture references, yet ultimately predictable (yay, good guys win). Will catch the movie one of these days.

Famous cases wherein rich people and/or their hangers-on get away with murder, including the murders of Dunne's own daughter and those of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Previously published in Vanity Fair (perhaps not all?).
