Hook: Would you ever convict an innocent boy who acted out of defense of himself and his friend of murdering person who constantly attacks him? The answer should be no. Background information: Known as his “greaser gang’s” pet, Johnny Cade grew up in a household with no role models. Not only was he constantly bullied at home, he was attacked outside as well.

The book I would select would be The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. Though the title is a bit on the nose, it isn’t the reason that I selected this work of fiction.

Orr asserts that "this technique was designed to make us prisoners panic and fight one another to get to the safer center of mass", but it didn't work, as the main
