I really enjoyed this book. I thought it had really good insight into the world of social classes as portrayed by Ponyboy. I especially enjoyed his interaction with his oldest brother, Darry. I could definately see that Darry was working hard to fill the parent role and the reasons that Ponyboy resented him. I was glad to see that eventually Ponyboy understood what he was doing and how much he cared. I think I enjoyed the characters' insights the best. They each understood something about themselves and their lives and they way they effect others by the end of the book.
