Well-rounded characters and good writing, S.E. Hinton did a fantastic job with this story - and only at 15/16? Amazing.
The plot was easy to follow, and the narrative voice of Ponyboy was enjoyable, relatable, and at times, funny and witty. I also really liked the themes Hinton focused on - social divide, family, friends (ie. chosen family).
Made for a short read, would recommend to anyone.
