In The Outsiders by S E Hinton the author discusses many universal themes such as the way people act under pressure trying to hide from reality and friendship The Outsiders is about a boy named Ponyboy who has two brothers named Darry and Sodapop that hang out with Johnny Two-Bit Dally and Steve The novel talks about how Ponyboy lived his life as a Greaser and all the problems he and his friends hadWhen under pressure most people act differently than they would normally especially if they place pressure on themselves as well In the novel The Outsiders when the church that Ponyboy and Johnny were staying in after they had run away was burning they went inside to save the kids that somehow got in because they thought that they had set the fire in the first place Later when Ponyboy is sitting in the car with Randy at the Tasty Freeze Ponyboy exclaimed You might not have You might have done the same thing This implies the meaning with the pressure you do not know what you actually would have done Friendships may sometimes consist of two or more people who become closer together than the people are close to their own parents because of a lacking amount of care from their parents For example when Johnny is in the hospital he only wants to see his friends Even though his mom came to see him he did not want to see her This is showing that Johnny had become closer to his friends than his own mother because she had abused him so muchPeople that hide from reality are actually hiding from themselves because reality is always there you cannot make it go away no matter how hard you try For instance when Ponyboy is coming home from the hospital after Johnny died he keeps telling himself Johnny is not dead repeatedly
