Transcript of The Insiders Post
Johnny is like a lost puppy. In the novel, Ponyboy says, "If you can picture a little dark puppy that has been kicked too many times and is lost in a crowd of strangers, you'll have Johnny" (11). Johnny is shy. He is even scared at times. Even though Johnny is quiet, he eventually stands up for himself and becomes brave.

Ponyboy is smart and his brain lights up like a lightbulb when he is reading. In the novel it says, "I make good grades and I have a high I.Q., but I don't use my head" (4). Ponyboy is intelligent, however, he does not always use common sense. Walking alone in Ponyboy's community is risky because you can get jumped. Ponyboy is an honors student who does not make wise street decisions.
S. E. Hinton uses characterization techniques to provide the reader with details about each character to help develop the novel's plot. Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally are all greasers; but above all, they are close friends who care about each other's well-being. Hinton's detailed descriptions allow the reader to form meaningful connections with all of the characters that leave the reader wanting more even after the book has ended.

Dallas Winston is as tough as nails. Ponyboy says, "He was tougher than the rest of us-tougher, colder, meaner" (10). Dally is one of the roughest greasers. He comes from a harsh background. Having a rough life can change anyone.
