The Outsiders Speech

Decent Essays

Have you ever read The Outsiders book? I have and their is an interesting topic within it. The topic is over whether or not Ponyboy should live with his brothers or be put in a boys home. I believe he should get put into a foster home , but do you? First of all Ponyboys parents are dead. They died in a plane crash and he has been living with Darry and Soda since then. Sure he is close to his brothers , but it is not the entirely best thing for a fourteen year old to be cruising the streets at his own free will. In Ponyboy's neighborhood their is especially a lot of gang violence. It occurs between the socials and the greasers which have been fighting for along time. Their has been plenty of people hurt from the violence including Ponyboy!
