This is a collection of two books by S.E. Hinton; THE OUTSIDERS and THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW.
THE OUTSIDERS is about rivalry between the greasers and the Socs in 1960's Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ponyboy Curtis, a 14-year-old greaser, is one of the many kids caught up in this mess. Luckily, he has his fellow orphan brothers, Sodapop and Darrel, plus his gang of almost-brothers, to help him out. One night, though, Johnny Cade, another greaser, kills a Soc to save Ponyboy, which causes them to run to Dallas Winston for advice. Johnny and Ponyboy go to hide out, which turns into a chain of events leading to tragedy.
THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW is about two teenage boys, Bryon and Mark. Mark is an orphan, and he was adopted by Bryon's family after his parents died. The two boys were like brothers before that, though. But things are changing between them. They both feel it, but they don't know exactly what's going on. Bryon is trying to move on, and grow up, by becoming more serious about some things, like his girlfriend Cathy. Mark still just lives for the thrill of things, and seems to be trying not to grow up. Then one night, Bryon comes to a horrible realization about Mark, which throws at him a decision that could change their friendship forever.
THE OUTSIDERS is easily one of the best books I've ever read. If you don't buy this collection to read both, at LEAST read THE OUTSIDERS. You won't forget this vivid and amazing story.
THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW was not as good. The plot was less unique, and the characters were less developed. Still good, but it takes a backseat to THE OUTSIDERS.
This overall is an amazing collection by an amazing author, so if I had to describe, I'd say it was--amazing. This is a terrific buy.
I have loved this book since I was a child. It is one I treasure today.
Ponyboy Curtis and his equally weirdly named older brother, Sodapop live with their oldest brother, Darrell. The boys' parents are dead and Darrell scrapes by at a minimum wage job to make ends meet.
The brothers live in Oklahoma during the mid-1960s. Called "Greasers" because of their love for Elvis and hair grease, these boys are socially defined by their residence. They are considered "from the wrong side of the tracks."
The "Socs," short for "Socialites" are the more affluent kids who look down on the greasers. Ponyboy is friendly with a Soc girl, thus crossing social boundaries. He is equally friendly with other greasers, including Byron, a very bright and literate boy and his adopted brother, Mark. Mark ends up in jail and Byron graduates from the large high school he attends with Ponyboy.
Both boys share the love a quasi-soc girl. Her brother, called M&M is a brilliant boy who falls prey to drugs and hard street living.
The characters are sharp and well defined as is their neighborhood. The story is indeed compelling and many of these same characters are revisted in "The Outsiders."
S. E. Hinton's books make me think of "Romeo & Juliet" and "West Side Story" with attitude. I love her works.
