A Classic Revisited

A class doesn’t go by where someone doesn’t bring up the horrors of high school English class and being forced to read books like To Kill a Mocking Bird, 1984, The Outsiders, etc. While we all agree on their merit as literature we often disagree as to whether or not they are still relevant to today’s teens.

So I was really pleased when I came across a book blog by an actual teenager about the book the Outsiders. She had to read it for school (figures) but she actually enjoyed it, and recommended it.  I guess this goes to show that the classics are really timeless.

For her review of the Outsiders click here.

  1. I really liked the outsiders, and even though it’s a bit dated I think it still has value. Cool to see that there are still teens that think so as well, unlike most of our class.
