One of my new favorite authors (as of 2 days ago) is S.E. Hinton. Most of you will probably recognize her because she wrote The Outsiders. That Was Then, This Is Now is almost like the sequel to The Outsiders. The main characters are different, but Ponyboy and the Shepard gang are mentioned. The story takes place a year or two after everything that happened in The Outsiders. In my opinion, That Was Then, This is Now is not quite as good as The Outsiders. Don’t get me wrong, they’re both really great books. So next time you need a book to read, check out That Was Then, This is Now!
