    This book is one of teh worst books I have ever read, and I dont know why it was writen in the first place the dialog is dull and the reading level is far bellow what I would call middle school. The only reason a high school student would read this is the subject matter being to much for younger children.

          I just read this book for school and it was really good! i have also read that was then and this is now and that is about these two brothers and what they experienced. the author is a girl when she wrote it most people wouldn't read books by girls same with J.K. Rowling

            If you enjoyed The Outsiders, this book piggybacks off a similar theme, setting, and conflcit. Ponyboy is also a character in this novel. If you are like me and like action, danger, and a quick pace, this book would suit you.
