    The Outsiders changed my world in 1983 and was probably already passé by then, so there’s hope! Man, that book was cherry.

    ‘Cherry’–what a great term. Keep using it, Brian.

    Middle school students at Jeffrey’s alma mater still read and totally love The Outsiders. Still cherry, as you say, but they’d never call it that!!!

    I myself read Anne of Green Gables, many times, which is also still in the library and rarely, but sometimes, checked out.

    The OTHER great science fiction novel from my younger days that never got made into a movie–Childhood’s End. So sad we can make Transformer movies over and over but no Childhood’s End. Go figure.
