That's true! I mean, I feel pretty much like you! She's one of the same reasons that I began writing. This is totally off topic, but that Disney movie READ IT AND WEEP, well, after watching that, I got out my copy of the outsiders and I got to thinking about the similarities between me, Hinton, Jamie, and Ponyboy. I sat down at the computer and turned out 23 pages! She is SUCH an inspiration! I mean, I just can't even say it!

Although I've always read a lot, S.E. Hinton was what got me to start writing so much. Also what got me to actually like to write so much. Now thanks to her I can really express myself through what I write!

I feel the same way. I'm STILL trying to understand how Hinton could get such a great grasp on life like she did in the Outsiders at such a young age. Majority of teens these days don't really have a good outlook on life, whereas S.E Hinton found some truth that I could only have learned from her.

I too am a pursuing author, and Hinton is a great person to look up to.

Thank you S.E Hinton! :)
