Rusty is the perfect example of a self-fulfilling prophecy. He, as well as not only his gang but rival gangs, look upon Motercycle Boy with awe. Motercycle Boy lives in another world that gives him a beyond 'cool' exterior. In a normal family life, he'd likely have grown into a professor of philosophy, but within the paradigm he exists, he is a suppressed ticking time bomb, but a remarkably passive one. He has fully accepted his lot in life, as well as his likely demise, and observes it from a distance that lacks sound and color.
Rusty is insistent that he will be just like his brother when he grows up, though others around him scoff at the idea. He repeatedly point out that they look just alike and that once he finishing growing up, he will not only look identical but assume the 'coolness' of Motercycle Boy. He is correct, though not precisely the way he expected.Read more ›
S.E. Hinton is a master of her trade. The charecters in this novel are extremely well developed and unique. Unforgetable, moveing, and true this is definatly one of my favorite books. A good building block to heavier novels such as Catcher in the Rye and Drugstore Cowboy.

S.E.Hinton is a great writer. The story was great, but the ending happened in the last 2 chapters. The ending was a little too fast for me. I would have liked to see it last.Published 4 months ago by Rhonda Hedrick
