by S.E. Hinton
All of Hinton’s books, but really The Outsiders in particular, changed my entire view of life at the age of 12. They gave me a glimpse of completely different world of teenagers, somewhere far from my life in rural CT. The Outsiders confirmed my love of reading, boys like Dallas Winston, and the poetry of Robert Frost. It remains one of my favorite books to this day.
