    :O !!!!! I got Supergifted from DOGObooks and I loved it so so much (I also read Ungifted) and now that I see that there is another book by Gordon Korman, I really want it! Supergifted was really really funny and I think the Unteachables will be too ( I reviewed it) and I'll be sure to share it with my family and library after I'm done reading it. Thanks so much for this oppertunity :D :D :D

    lumos's movie review was featured in The Outsiders.
    (Warning: Slight Spoilers) It’s the 1960s. People are recovering from The Great Depression. But, did you expect that, just like these days, kids were judged highly on their money, cars, and clothes? Ponyboy (14) (main character), his brothers handsome Sodapop Curtis (16) and strong and oldest Darrel Curtis (20 something), and the rest of the gang mean and crude Dally, scared of his own shadow Johnny (16), Steve (17) , and (19), are what are called greasers, the east side. The only thing they were truly proud of was their hair greased back. They weren’t very rich or popular with the Socs, or socials, on the West Side. Guys who wore expensive clothes and drove the hottest Mustangs. Girls who didn’t wear too much eye makeup and looked like supermodels all the same. When Ponyboy meets Sherri “Cherry” Valance at the movies after they rejected their boyfriends since they were drunk, she and him immediatley became buddies. Dally, Cherry told Ponyboy that things were “rough all over”, but he didn’t believe her. She also told him not to be upset if she saw him at school and didn’t say hi. She was a nice girl, but she wasn’t about to embarrass herself in front of all her friends. Once Bob, Cherry’s drunk boyfriend, sees that his girl, and his best friends girl Marcia, were picked up by a couple greasers (Ponyboy, Johnny and Twobit) they hinted that this wasn’t over, and Cherry and Marcia went with them to prevent fights. But when Johnny kills a Soc for self defense concerning Ponyboy, life takes an unexpected twist concerning a church on fire that changes their gang forever in more than one way. Based on the bestselling novel by S.E Hinton, the Outsiders will show you how kids were concerned with popularity even back then. It’s defintley one of my favorite books, and I think you should read the book before you watch the movie (the book and movie are both amazing).
