The Outsiders

The girl and I were driving today and she told me they watched a movie in class today.

I said ohh really, a movie

And she told me they’d finished the book so they were watching the movie. That was when I asked her what it was.

The Outsiders

Like only the best movie any junior high girl ever sees. And the book is even better.

But as an angst filled teen in the 80s, a book of struggle and rebellion starring Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Ralph Macchio, Matt Dillon, C. Thomas. Howell, Tom Cruise, and Emilio Estevez is the kind of thing dreams are made of.

I loved that story, and she loves it now too. No matter how times change, teenage girls stay the same.
