the outsiders is a classic teen novel

Outstanding classic

When I first read the Outsiders I was to young to understand that it is a timeless piece of literature that spans not only decades but generations as relatable in every since of the word. Now that I am an adult if you read it you will seem themes that have spaned across the generations that are still happening now in junior high schools and high schools today. The biggest theme that is hit upon in the Outsiders that has not changed is the theme of cliques but back when S.E. Hinton wrote the book she referred to them as gangs and that is because back in the 60's there were only two groups of people but now in a new generation of young students there several but the term has not changed. I still to this day read this book because it is a great character study that shows that our counter has not changed but it has just grown and changed somewhat but not a lot.
