Samantha G.

2nd period


The story is set in the east side of Chicago, where musty air blows and the temperature changes throughout the seasons. The streets in this setting stay sunny but dangerous during the day and dark and edgy at night. Without this setting the story would not create as much suspense. The dark edgy feeling in the night give the “someone is watching you” feeling.

Main conflict
Main Conflict

Man vs. Society:

The socs are beating up Johnny and Ponyboy in the park. Johnny feels the only way to get them to leave Ponyboy alone is to bring out his knife. He stabs one of the socs. Johnny and Ponyboy run away to Windrixville so they aren’t blamed.

Summary of plot
Summary of Plot

There is bad conflict between the socs and greaser as they try to get by. Johnny and Ponyboy did something that will scare them for the rest of their live and are forced to move away. Their new home catches fire. Saving children from the fire Johnny, Ponyboy, and Darry are badly burned and are taken to a hospital. Johnny is in critical condition and it is unsure whether he will make it or not.


  • Problems are universal.

    I’m not saying that either socs or greasers are better; that’s just the way things are.

  • Text Evidence 2:

    “He might get beat up, he might not.”

    “He was in critical condition.”

Point of view
Point of View

3rd Person:

The story is written in the third person point of view. The narrator is also the main character, and the author. The reader is a able to put themselves in the narrator’s place, they are able to better feel the suspense and action.


The symbolism in this story was used to tell the socs and the greasers apart if they were to be seen. The greasers are usually dressed in worn up clothes and greased back hair. The socs are the ones you see driving around in their fancy cars and varsity jackets.


I do think that this book is worth reading because it is a very exciting, very interesting book. There is something exciting going on every page whether it’s a bad or a good exciting.
