The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton I can appreciate its groundbreaking qualities, but what was groundbreaking in the '60s isn't anymore, and there are far too many places where the author's teenagerness shows a bit embarrassingly. Doesn't quite hold up under today's standards for YA literature, in my opinion.
