Reflection Of The Outsiders By S. E. Hinton

Recently, I have been asked to read a book over the course of summer vacation for school. Unlike most homework assignments, this book caught hold of my eye as a reader and captivated me entirely with an atmosphere of intensity and suspense. That novel is called "The outsiders" by S.E. Hinton. While the book being fiction, I felt as if many aspects of the book were influenced by reality because of how relatable it is. For example, there are many feelings of loss and emotion scattered throughout the novel, such as when Ponyboy 's friend Jhonny died. This can be relatable to many adolescents that may feel insecure, just as the main character Ponyboy had. There are also many issues in the book that we face today, such as social separation and trauma.
