Rumble Fish

By Susan Eloise Hinton

A junior high school boy idolizes his older brother, the coolest, toughest guy in the neighborhood, and wants to be just like him. S.E. Hinton's books have shown, over the past twenty-one years, the "lasting ability to speak to the young adult experience, to help reader to become more aware of themselves and of the world around them."
