The Outsiders

Books we are glad that mom shared with us

Thirty day book challenge, day 23

When I was in junior high, this book was what everyone was reading, especially since the movie was coming out. C. Thomas Howell and Matt Dillon were the heartthrobs at the time. Rob Lowe was also in it. We had to read it for school, and many classmates attempted to skip reading the book and just write the book report based on the movie. There were enough differences between the book and the movie that it screamed “cheater” to all of us who loved both the book and movie.

Mom didn’t really share this with me, but I was able to help my own daughter read through it when she had to read it in high school. I don’t usually reread, but this one was worth it.
