what to write? what to write?
after killing bob ponyboy and johnny have to run away. Dally helps them by giving them a gun, money, and a place to go, the abandon church. on a feild trip a group of kids wonder into the church and then church bursts into flames. johnny and ponyboy end up saving the kids.
oh my! we missed you!
after saving the kids from the burning church Dally and johnny are both badliy burnt and need to be taken to the hospital. ponyboy only had some minor burns and he was reunited with his brothers. johnny later dies in the hospital.
oh no! poor johnny.
after Ponyboy gets back to normal from the events he went through he goes back to school. Ponyboy takes the death of johnny pretty hard and starts fighting with Darry more and letting his grades go down. as an attempt to get his grades back up his ELA teacher assigns him a theme to write. ponyboy ends up writing about his life with the socs and the greasers.
my favorite part was when all the brothers were reunited. it really shows how much they love each other. i also liked how Darry finally showed his true emotion towards ponyboy. they really need each other and i feel that every one can relate to that; needing someone to rely on.
