My reward for making it to the end of the Sunday Times Book Review before Monday? The mindblowing realization that A) S.E. Hinton is a chick (I always assumed that S.E. Hinton was some one-hit-dude-lit wonder, as The Outsiders didn't really stick with me as the Great American Novel), and B) The Outsiders was published when she was 17. I hope she also turned the manuscript in as her senior Creative Writing paper.
