Not as good as I thought it was going to be. My sister loves S.E. Hinton's books and I thought (with my odd Greaser kick lately) that I would try them out and Rumble Fish just let me down. Read full review

I thoroughly disliked this book, partly because I thought it was poorly-written...which is not something I would have expected from this author. Off to the used bookstore it goes. Read full review

About the author (1975)

S. E. Hinton was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and attended the University of Tulsa.

It was made into a movie in 1983. Her other young adult works include Rumble Fish, Tex, Taming the Star Runner, and That Was Then, This is Now. Her children's books include The Puppy Sister and Big David, Little David. She has won numerous awards including the Margaret Alexander Edwards Award, the Media and Methods Maxi Award, and the Land of the Enchantment Award.
