Truly a Masterpiece!

It is a great book! S.E Hinton has truly created a masterpiece. I think that this book should be kept as a required book for many schools.

I can't stand Kathy. I can't stand Brian. Disgusting how anybody could ever turn on their family for somebody they just met. Grossed out. In disbelief. I could literally puke. Kathy is whiny and annoying. Brian is the definition of a snake. Mark was just misunderstood and needed some guidance. Don't even bother reading this. Atrocious.
