I will be revisiting my youth with my next book club meeting, we will be reading The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, oh how I loved this movie when I was a young girl. I have actually never read the book so I am rather excited to read the story I usually think that the book is always better than the movie so we will see. I remember having favorites when I was younger SodaPop for is good looks and sweet smile, that Ponyboy was so innocent and smart and that Dally was a bad boy, what girl doesn't like a bad boy there is some kind of excitement about a boy who has a wild side. But when I think about it I think that each boy in this movie had qualities that I liked or admired. I also love music from this decade, I still listen to it to this day, it was way before my time but I find myself singing to it and it makes me feel good.
We have a few girls in our book club who have not experienced the Outsiders I am excited to see if they will love it as much as I. I am also looking forward to the discussion I can't wait to see what everyone took away from reading this classic.
Have you ever read The Outsiders? Who was your favorite character and why?
