Is Ponyboy Relatable Or Trustless?

105 Words1 Page
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.
