Tex McCormick-He loves horses. S.E. Hinton does not describe what Tex looks like in the movie he has brown hair and brown eyes. He is described as a free sprit, hard-headed, and charming.
Mason McCormick-He likes to fish. It does not describe what he looks like in the movie he has brown eyes and brown hair he is 3 years older than Tex which is 17.He is described as sarcastic, bossy, and private.

Tex gets shot when Him and Lem go sell crack to a guy named Kelly. Kelly shots Tex, and Lem leaves him on the side of the road. Mason has an ulcer so he can’t play basketball very good. Tex doesn’t want Mason to go to collage then he would have to take care of himself,but Mason really wants to leave.
Tex gets a job at Mr.Kencaide from Taming The Star Runner. Mason becomes nicer. Mason get accepted to Indiana University on a basketball scholar ship. Pop quits the rodeo and gets a job and now stays at home.
I thought it was so awesome which is what I say about all the S.E. Hinton books. Tex was super good. It was my third favorite book next to The Outsiders, RumbleFish. I like how he never stops trying to get Negrito back. I thought it was really sad that Tex wasn’t really Pop’s son that’s why he favored Mason. I like how the end Mason gets nice and goes fishing with Tex.
