The Outsiders

by S. E. Hinton

This is like the movie Quadrophenia in reverse. You have a conflict between teenage gangs--in this case the Elvis-loving "Greasers" versus the Beatle preferring "Socs"--but the story is told from the perspective of the greasers. It's not a bad tale, as far as it goes. The cover of my copy touts the book as a "revealing novel about teenagers--by a teenager." It shows. There's a definite lack of maturity in the book's tone. Still, I've read worse.

Waiting room material.
