Rumble fish: Review
What has a crowd of dangerous people, is deadly, and most of all, sinister? That's right it's a gang, out looking for trouble. Rumble fish is a story about a teenaged boy ("Rusty" James) that has taken the position of his brother the "motorcycle boy." This position is the leader of a gang that has gone out of control, and his brother teaches him a very valuable lesson that could possibly change his life. This was a fantastic book, especially for someone who likes violence, suspense, and an overall great read. The author placed many messages in this book but the one that struck me the most repeatedly was, it's alright to be different from others because your ideas and thoughts can only benefit eachother. This message was very clear in my mind and that's the main reason why I enjoyed reading this wonderful classic.
