try 1: Heavily abridged version, oops. Got to find the real one.

try 2: Success! The things they chose to abridge were really odd, including a lot of the sense of place. I thought it was supposed to be NYC, and then Chicago, but it's really somewhere in the southwest (AZ? NM?).

I didn't know what this was when I started it, but it's an old young adult book. The line "stay golden, Ponyboy" comes from this book. A group of boys who consider themselves lower class, or greasers, tangle with a group of upper class boys, or socials. It's mostly about finding out that people are people with problems and longings no matter what group you put them in. This was written by a woman and there are almost no women in this book, which I thought was strange. I'd say this still holds up otherwise though.… (mais)

Representation: N/A?
Trigger warnings: Murder and attempted murder, bullying, fire, building collapse, near-death experiences, death of parents in a car crash in the past, smoking
Score: Seven points out of ten.

I wanted to read this for a while after adding it to my list but I put it off for a while; a few months later I finally picked it up and read it. When I finished it I thought it was one of the few books that were less than 200 pages yet it could still tell a great story which I appreciated and I'll remember this one for a while. It starts with the main character Ponyboy (whose last name I don't know) living presumably somewhere in America with other characters who are part of a group called the Greasers whose enemy is the Socs (I don't know why those two gangs hate each other but oh well. It might be an incident in the past that the novel never mentioned. Or something else entirely.) Everything looks fine initially until an altercation happens forcing Ponyboy to flee somewhere else, and soon enough they find a church where they stay for a few pages of the narrative. Did I mention they smoke a lot? I've never seen a book where teenagers smoke until now (and they still read books, I know some teenagers still read books but most of them don't unless it's required reading.) A few pages later the church burns down nearly killing some characters and I soon discover Ponyboy recovering but nothing much happened save for a heartrending conversation (don't get me wrong, that is a flaw in the book but it didn't ruin my enjoyment in any way) which ends the book on a low note.… (mais)

Wow. This book will take some time to process. I love the writing style, voice, message, and story. So, basically I liked everything about this book.

(Read for YA lit class)
