Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 February #1
    This realistic but sometimes unconvincing and melodramatic teenage novel by a 17-year-old girl centers on the actions of a semitough gang in a city in Oklahoma. Narrated by 14-year-old Ponyboy, the story describes the conflict between the "greasers" and the wealthy upper-classboys, during the course of which Ponyboy's best friend is provoked into killing another boy. Some of Ponyboy's philosophizing about himself, his friends, and his enemies does not ring true, but on the whole the book is a meaningful narrative with appeal for teenage readers. Junior high and high school. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
