Insider to The Outsiders – Final

This is the final chunk for The Outsiders for S.E.Hinton. We are working on chapters nine to twelve.

In these chapters, the greasers and the Socs have a rumble. Fight. Whatever.

Johnny finally dies. As does Dally.

The greasers win the fight, but Ponyboy gets hurt. He becomes delirious and has to stay in bed. Missing school. Kids from school come to visit him. Along with Randy. He makes the mistake about saying that Johnny had died, and Ponyboy denies everything. Poor Child.

When it comes time for the court for Johnny, Ponyboy, and Bob and Randy, Ponyboy hardly knows what’s going on. In the end, the court goes well. Everything’s all shiny and bright. Except Ponyboy.

Why does death make people go mad/sick/into depression?

It’s a well known fact in the written world. In the very first Artimis Fowl book, Artimis’s mother goes into depression after her husband is lost, presumed dead. Many people always seem to add that extra feature. Guy’s wife died, goes mad, kills his umpteen thousand kids. Why?

Also, why does extreme happiness lead to death. Guy wins lottery, dead next day.

At least that is easy to answer. People kill for money. But killing for… sadness?

Actually, near the end of the book, Ponyboy’s teacher notices this at school, and he gives him one more chance on a writing assignment. He looks for a long time on what to write about, and finally starts to write the events of the last twelve chapters. He writes The Outsiders.

Greif leads to a great book.

In theory.
