Ponyboy has always thought of their relationship being very close. He says how Soda's the only one that understands him, how he always listened to everything Pony wanted to say to him, therefor he perceived the relationship as a very good one. But one day Pony noticed how Soda’s been acting differently, but he continues on and doesn’t pay much attention, however. His view of the relationship changes when Pony and Darry had a fight about school and Soda ran out of the house. Pony didn’t know what was going on, so Darry explained, “It’s the letter he wrote to Sandy, returned unopened.” (Hinton 174) Here, Pony realizes that their relationship isn't all that good.
In this book report I will talk about the book “The outsiders” written by S.E. Hinton, I will do a review of the story, the point of view, theme, symbols and my opinion about this book I really liked to read for the English class. The story is about a boy named Ponyboy who lived in a small town in Texas with his two brothers Darry and Sodapop were a gang war was taking place between two different social class people: The Socs and the Greasers.

“Running away won 't help.” Johnny was right. Ponyboy had people that loved and cared for him...they just didn 't know how to show it!” In the book The Outsiders by S.E Hinton, proves that no matter what type of Social class you are; Greaser or Socs, family is most important and will help you get through the difficult parts in life. Ponyboy, a greaser, was one of the young boys that was matured throughout the book because of his hardships. Ponyboy 's relationship with his older brothers, Darry and Sodapop, is a key factor in how Ponyboy matured throughout the book. An example of Ponyboy almost maturing from the influence of Darry and Sodapop, is when their parents were killed in a car crash.
This is one of those books that deserve to be on any teenager’s shelf. I would firmly recommend this book to any tween or teen who has trouble fitting in. Rodman Philbrick has outdone himself in writing his first children’s book. If you say that this book is horrible or bad, either you didn’t read it closely or you have a different taste of books than
The Outsiders After reading about this book for a whie now I have decided to write about how innocence will fade with age. I chose this because I felt like in the book there were a lot of parts when the innocence faded as the boys became older Pony boy Curtis lives in a world where there are two types of people, the greasers who have no chance and the socials who have all the chances. One of the most important things fir the greasers is loyalty and trust and the only family the greasers have are themselves Darry is the leader and Pony boy’s oldest brother, Soda is pony’s second eldest brother and certainly the handsomest. The other members of the gang are Dally: who is a hood from New York and two bit who steals stuff just to keep his rep

That you can always go back to get memories. Yes the school have a symbolic meaning because all the main characters have good memories and they have flashbacks when they were little and when they was in school and when they had lots of fun and they don't want nothing to happen to there childhood memories.
Besides, the book is a required reading in many english-speaking schools around the world. There are many themes that are addressed in the book, however, three of them are the “American dream”, coming to terms with broken plans, and friendship. The first theme, the “American dream”, during the 1930s “Great Depression”, was a recurring dream of most people; they dreamed of, one day having money, having their own land, having a family and, consequently, live a comfortable life not having to worry about anything going wrong. Both Lennie and George
When you get into school as a young child, you are learning to get along with all kinds of racially diverse children. You usually find friends that are the same gender as you are because you don’t really know what kids of the opposite gender that age are capable of. You definitely want female friends if you are a girl because who else would you tell your deepest secrets to? And boys are usually friends with other boys because they are almost like brothers. In “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, in the pilot called “The Gang Gets Racist”, the characters show that most Caucasian males are unable to treat people that are racially different and that have a different gender the same as other Caucasian males.
Becoming a Book Essay Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney is a book based on the life of a teenager and also the main character named Greg Heffley. Diary of a Wimpy Kid should be preserved because it puts a good picture in one’s mind, it isn’t boring like some other books that are, and it has some really interesting parts. This book should be saved because it’s a book that most kids in elementary school and middle school enjoy. This book puts a good picture in one’s mind because when Greg said he got a new phone but it was no ordinary phone. It was called the “Lady bug” and that it only had two buttons: one to call his house phone and one that was used to call 911.
Like Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” In most books children experience happy endings where everyone gets along, but in reality, not everyone gets along. There are wars going on, economic and political issues, many ups and downs in this world, and one of them I chose to talk about today is racism. Throughout the novel, the author shows that people are people and skin color doesn’t change that. The author, Mildred Taylor, shows how some characters in the book are not actually racist which demonstrates the meaning on the quote. These characters show how black people are human beings as well and that they shouldn’t be treated any
The childhood world of Jem, Scout, and Dill is easygoing. Even though it is laid back they still have rules like every kid and adult. Their relationship with Boo Radley was weird. The three kids even invented a game after Boo Radley. Yet, they all are scared of him.
On Malcolm’s trip to Mecca he realized that everyone can live peacefully together, they just need to put their differences behind them. He realized that under their skin they were the same. He didn’t need to be violent to get his point across. He could get the job done by being peaceful. Malcolm X’s assassination was unjust because he was helping those that were around him by ending racism.
If everyone was made equal how is it fair to others? In the story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurk Vonnegut Jr, The year is 2018, people are completely equal, and they are the same in every way possible. There are people in the society being handicapped to be made the same as the other people in the society. The people who aren’t handicapped are the people who have “perfect” intelligence, strength, and beauty, which means that they aren’t that big of a threat. The superiors(intellectual people) are a bigger threat to the society, the so called “perfect” citizens are not a threat because they can’t process their own thoughts very well.
Mark Twain’s utilization of Huck as a narrator is a key part in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck’s life is very easy to understand and follow throughout the story. The story would’ve been completely different if anyone else was the narrator. Twain uses Huck effectively as a narrator because we can sympathize with him more than we could with Jim, the many things he can do that Jim can’t, and through the hardships that Huck, Jim, and Tom face. Huck’s background makes us feel bad for him because he is a teenager who has a very abusive father and doesn’t have a mom.
The awkwardness that Ponyboy has makes him seem both relatable and trustworthy. The author gave him a personality that doesn’t come across as “weird awkwardness” but it comes across as more of a “universal awkwardness.” Whether or not the reader is the same age as Ponyboy, chances are they can understand what he is doing, even through the first meetings. This is most likely because he has so many aspects of his life that are still present in today’s youth that were experienced by the youth of generations passed. Having a feeling of familiarity helps in building trust and among people that were otherwise strangers.
