Author has written 6 stories for Outsiders.
Just a little about me :)
I got into writing after reading The Outsiders in the seventh grade. So that's when I wrote The Outsiders II and then wrote The Outsiders: Who We Are because I thought I needed a background story, anyway... so since then I've been writing and I love it! Besides writing, I love music, soccer, and acting.
My favorite artists are Taylor Swift, Adele, Maroon 5, Paramore, Christina Perri, and my new obsession Parachute to name a few
Favorite Movies: The Outsiders (of course), Pretty In Pink, Inception, The Goonies, Grease, All Super Hero Movies (Batman being my favorite) and many more
Favorite Books: The Outsiders (of course) and all of S. E. Hinton's book (except the children's books), And Then There Were None, Absolutely Normal Chaos, Because of Winn-Dixie, Do You Know the Monkey Man?, Peaches Series, and Identical
TV Shows I Can't Live Without: iCarly, Psych, Parks and Recreation, What Not to Wear, Saved by the Bell, Pretty Little Liars, Make It or Break It and White Collar
Quotes I Live By: "What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger." (Unknown); "All your dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them." (Walt Disney)
Well, those are the some of the most important things in my life besides family and friends! I know it's not much but that's as much as I'm going to share with the public! :)

You Know You're Obsessed With the Outsiders When...
You laugh every time you drink a soft drink for reasons unknown to people around you.
You name your horse (Or any other pet) Ponyboy.
You've looked up Robert Frost poems before, just to read Nothing Gold Can Stay from a million different sources.
You've read Gone With the Wind, even though it's more than a thousand pages long, for no other reason except because it was mentioned in The Outsiders.
If you HAVE read Gone With the Wind, you get randomly excited and squeal at the page where it quotes exactly, "riding into sure death because they were gallant".
You've started wearing black leather jackets, old jeans, and white t-shirts a lot more than you usually do.
You've researched the 60s for fun, and you have asked questions concerning the 60s to your baffled history teacher.
You've started caring about your hair a lot more than you did before.
You compare random people to The Outsiders characters when you see them.
You've started using the words, "ain't", "golly", "gee", "dig", "tuff", and other old slang words proudly, not paying attention to the weird stares you're getting from people around you.
You daydream about the greasers and imagine yourself in their time period.
You suddenly start looking for greasers when you're out of your house.
You've read the book so many times you could quote entire pages from it.
You love your English teacher for getting you to read it.
You announce to your stunned parents that your new favorite cartoon character is Mickey Mouse.
You want to hit people when your teacher's showing the Outsiders movie, and they don't pay attention to it/laugh at it.
You rush up to every random person reading the book, squealing and babbling about how amazing the book is, and how much they're gonna love it so much. You say these thing to COMPLETE STRANGERS too.
You suddenly wish you had a southern accent, and you love people who actually do.
You've developed a sudden interest in old movies.
You do a double take each time someone says the word "Soda" or "Pony".
You laugh every time you drink Pepsi (Ponyboy's addiction) or Coke. (Dally/Cherry incident)
You write "Stay Gold" as the last line of every letter you write.
You've paused the movie at the very beginning when Ponyboy writes in his composition book, and tried to copy his handwriting.
You've wondered what it would be like the live as a greaser in the 1960s.
You and your best friend spend three hours running around the mall asking random people where you can find some white and black Converse high-tops, just because Ponyboy has white ones and Johnny has black. Then you spend all your mom's birthday money buying some. (Not with my best friend, I got them with my mom but didn't tell her why I wanted black converse; she kept suggesting other colors and other shoes :)
You spend twenty bucks at the bouncy ball machine, trying to get a red one. Then when you do, you walk around your subdivision for hours, bouncing it like Ponyboy does in the beginning of the movie.
You laugh hysterically when you really do "step out into the sunlight from the darkness of the movie house."
Certain songs remind you of characters/gang.
You've committed the Nothing Gold Can Stay poem to memory.

You start quoting the book.
You've memorized the number page on your favorite parts
You make a list of Greasers and Socs using people you know.
You start using the slang in the book (like glory or shoot).
When talking to someone who has never read it, you get defensive when they ask if Ponyboy was his real name.
You freak whenever you see a blue Mustang.
You've read the book multiple times
After reading it again, you wonder at the details. (Like why Sodapop signed his full name on his letter to his little brother. Did he think that he'd been forgotten? or why they mentioned the nightmares...?).
You go to Dairy Queen. While at said restaurant, you order bar-bq-sandwiches and banana splits.
You contemplate the meaning of "gallant"
You start calling your group of close friends a gang (Always have, always will :)
You watch sunsets (and sunrises)
You read this list and laugh at how many things you've done
