ReOutsiders book coverviewed by Aleesha

It’s the summer of 1965 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and trouble is beginning to stir between the two main gangs in the city. One gang being the Soc’s. Upper-class, spoiled rich kids who never hesitate to show off their fancy cars and superiority to the Greaser’s, the other ruling gang of the city. The Greaser’s, unfortunately, hail from the poorer side of the city, where tensions only seem to be growing between them and the Soc’s every day. The story begins with the main character, Ponyboy, a Greaser, having an unfortunate run in with a gang of Soc’s, where you’ll be introduced to Ponyboy’s gang members, who are quite an unforgettable bunch. I guarantee you’ll soon find they share much in common with you. Then, Ponyboy and his best friend Johnny become involved in an accident that changes their entire lives… and breaks the long standing border of hate between the Soc’s and the Greaser’s. Join Ponyboy as he experiences the tough life of a Greaser… and as he runs away in an effort to free himself of a fatal mistake that could end it. Once you start reading this book, It’ll take a whole gang of Greaser’s to make you put it down.
