Meet the Author

S.E. Hinton, was and still is, one of the most popular and best known writers of young adult fiction. Her books have been taught in some schools, and banned from others. Her novels changed the way people look at young adult literature.

Susan Eloise Hinton was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She has always enjoyed reading but wasn't satisfied with the literature that was being written for young adults, which influenced her to write novels like The Outsiders. That book, her first novel, was published in 1967 by Viking.

Once published, The Outsiders gave her a lot of publicity and fame, and also a lot of pressure. S.E. Hinton was becoming known as "The Voice of the Youth" among other titles. This kind of pressure and publicity resulted in a three year long writer's block.

    Some of Tim's Stories

    Mike and Terry are cousins who are raised as brothers. Mike's real name is Tim, who's telling the story. He refers to himself as mike. Everything changes for them when their fathers are killed in a car accident. Mike lives a life of guilt and sadness while Terry finds trouble with the law. S.E. Hinton has written many great books including "The Outsiders". I have read a few, however "Some of Tim's Stories" is my favorite. The book starts out slow but once you start reading it, you can't put it down. The novel is sad and very realistic. The story ends letting you decide the main character's fait, so there's no sad endings or perfect endings. The book is similar to "That Was Then, This is Now", by S.E. Hinton. Both are about two boys who are like brothers and their drama growing up. Read this book!

    It was G-R-E-A-T!!!!!!

    I loved this book! It took me about an hour to read the acctual story, this book was so good!! It's about a man named Tim, who is writing down some of his life stories (hence the name) he never uses his real name, but refers to himself as 'Mike'. All the stories are out of order and kind of about different things, but all the stories have ties to the same plot, Tim has overwhelming guilt after his cousin (who's more like a brother) is sent to jail, when Tim desvers to be there just as much. I understood it, even just being thirteen. This isn't anything like her other books, but, is just as good.

    perfect book!!! must read!!

    to cousins basically raised like brothers. Tim the narrator in the story (is known as mike in the story). Terry the other main character in the story..
    Mike becomes depressed and very emotional, terry becomes very known to the law, and gets arrested.

    suddenly, things take a turn for the worst terry's and mike's fathers die in a brutal car accident.

    Mike becomes depressed and very emotional, terry becomes very known to the law, and gets arrested.
    To get rid of the terrible emotions mike starts drinking heavily.

    mike finally gets out it of jail and mike and terry reunite.

    Your final review in my over all review I think it was a great book and would recommend it to anyone who is just trying to find a tear jerking , heart stopping, page turning novel! I absolutely congratulate S.E Hinton for this amazing book! She has totally out done her self!
