In the book, Outsiders, I noticed the most character development in Ponyboy Curtis. Although he didn’t realize many things until the end of the book, I think once everything registered within himself, he took everything that had happened to him in the past couple weeks as a lesson. One thing that Ponyboy finally grasped was that his oldest brother Darry actually cared for him. At first Ponyboy had always thought that Darry didn’t like him and that Darry would rather him be gone.

Reading the story “The Outsiders,” Ponyboy has always been worried if he would be taken away to a boys home but he doesn't understand that it might be better for him even if he is taken away from Darry, some readers are wondering what is best for him should he stay or should go into a boys home. Ponyboy is better off in a boys home because he will be better taken care of. Ponyboy should go into the system because Darry is proven to be hostile towards Ponyboy. “You don’t yell at him!
