The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

I have recently just finished reading The Outsiders. This book is by S.E. Hinton and the genre is Realistic Fiction. The Outsiders is about a neighborhood gang. The people in the gang are all best friends. The members are Johnny, Ponyboy, Dally, Darry, Soda, Two-bit, Steve. They live on the east side of town and are called greasers. Their called greasers because they are poor, but put a lot of gel in the hair. Greasers are rivals to the socs or socials. The socials are rich and live on the west side of town where everything is nice unlike what the greasers live in.
I liked The Outsiders because I'm into books about violence and gangs. This books about violence and gangs. This book has both which is even better. I think Jose would like The Outsiders because he is ,also into violence and loves gangs. Which makes him perfect for The Outsiders.
