The Outsiders written by S.E.Hinton is a book about kids who live rough lives and are always getting into trouble. The main character Ponyboy has a rough life but his friends help him through it. Him and his friends are called the greasers and are well known throughout the town. I think this book is very suspenseful and makes you want to read on and see what happens next. At one point in the story one of their friends gets into a brawl which causes them to all go into hiding. Some of the members try to gain redemption but others face a tragic end. I recommend this book to people who like suspense and drama.
