You know when you find an amazing book, and you never want it to end? How do you find another book to read after that? Our answer: Readalikes to the rescue! We hope our Readalikes will rescue you from the what-to-read-next question, and help you find lots of new amazing books.

Today’s Readalikes are for The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. Susan Eloise Hinton wrote The Outsiders while she was still in high school, and the story was inspired by 2 rival gangs at her school in 1965, the Greasers and the Socs.

The Outsiders was made into a movie in 1983 with Tom Cruise and Patrick Swayze when they were young. If you liked The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, you should read these other gritty, realistic stories for ages 12 and up. Click on the book cover below to see more The Outsiders Readalike books you might also love.
