NOTHING REALLY WELL THE PEOPLE FROM HER SCHOOL SHE WAS IN SCHOOL WITH THESE PEOPLE ITS BASED ON A TRUE STORY JUST SO YOU KNOW
she lived around greasers and socs
She was actually fifteen when she first began it. It was the year she was sixteen and a junior in high school that she did the majority of the work (that year she made a D… in creative writing). One day a friend of hers was walking home from school and these "nice" kids jumped out of a car and beat him up because they didn't like his being a greaser. This made her mad and she just went home and started pounding out a story about this boy who was beaten up while he was walking home from the movies--the beginning of The Outsiders. She was just something to let off steam. She didn't have any grand design. She just sat down and started writing it.
Longhand, then into a computer. By the way, right handed
She was too old to play pretend.
so she could deal with her dads condition, because of the 2 rival gangs in her high school, and because the was angry at the 2 gangs because fought over her friend.
She was 15 or 16 years old. The same year that she wrote the book, she flunked her creative writing class. Ironic (btw, best book ever!)
Because she relates to teens. She helps them with her books. Tells them there is a rebal side to life.
Her boyfriend wouldn't let her suck his pee-pee until she finished up The Outsiders. True life.
She usually writes about teenagers because she never had any good teenager books growing up and now she writes really good books for teenagers.
because of alexs
S.E. Hinton wrote this book because she was inspired by the two gangs or groups in her high school.
