reviewed on

That Was Then This is Now is the sequel to S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders but don't worry the Socs Vs. The Greaser fights aren't going on anymore. In fact only one character shows up and he doesn't really do anything.
Bryon and Mark are inseparable and as close as brothers but as Bryon spends more time with his girlfriend Cathy he and Mark srart growing apart.Then when M&M, Cathy's 13 year old brother runs away from home. What Bryon thinks has been a nice gesture towards finding M&M and earning money made by Mark horrifies him and then he makes a deision which turns his whiole life around.

I had to admit That Was Then This is Now was a very good and an easy read. I loved it but not as much as the first one of course I would recomend this book to anyone who lved the outsiders.
