The Best Book You're Not Reading (11)

I'm gonna harken to a classic and a book that will probably show up on a few high school reading lists this summer. Also, because I think it is important book for teens to read. I know this book changed the way I looked at a lot of people in my life. In high school regardless of time period there will always be cliques or the haves and the have nots. It's frustrating for teens who don't quite belong in any group. This book was published in 1967 and I still think it holds up today with all the problems that our teenagers deal with now. Bullying, coming out, making a stand. So the book I present to you is:

I went through and S.E. Hinton phase and read just about everything she wrote and am sad that she hasn't written anything nearly as beautiful and wonderful as this book. Again, I think this book is important even after 45 years. Some books don't age well and are very dated, but I know that I can go back to this book and see myself in some of the characters.  Ponyboy, the dreamer, the writer. Johnny, the tragic one and Dallas, the loner. We must all Stay Gold. Even when things seem to be at their worst. If there is a book that you need to read this summer for school, grab this one and dig in.  It really is magical.
