From the best-selling author of The Outsiders, S.E. Hinton's Tex explores friendships, conflict, depression, self-destructive behavior, and truth and acceptance. This edition includes a new and exclusive Author's Note. Easygoing and reckless, Tex, likes everyone and everything, especially his horse, Negrito, and Johnny Collins' blue-eyed sister, Jamie. Life with his older brother, Mason, would be just about perfect if only he would stop complaining about Pop, who hasn't been home in five months. While Mason worries about paying the bills and getting a basketball scholarship--his ticket out of Oklahoma--Tex just seems to attract trouble. When everything seems to be falling apart, how can Tex find a way to keep things together?

Te was soo great. But if you haven't read That Was Then this is Now or the Outsiders then you should (the latter before the former). Because Ponyboy and the Shepards from the Outsiders are in That Was Then and Mark and Cathy from That Was Then are in Tex.

Tex is a wonderful story of a boy with a horrible life. I cryed in some parts and laughed in others. It caught my attention on the first page. If it makes me interested it will probably make you interested too.

"Tex" is the story of two teenage brothers, Mason and Tex, who are pretty much on their own-- their mother is dead and their father is on the road a lot. The two brothers couldn't be more different: Mason is a serious, studious athlete who can't wait to move up in the world, while Tex is a daredevil kid intent on having fun. The book focuses on the brothers' relationship, as well as their relationship with their dad.

Though it's not as well-known as Hinton's "The Outsiders," Tex is just as well-written, the dialogue is just as real, and the characters just as unforgettable. It does, however, lack the theme/ message present in "The Outsiders." A great book for reluctant readers.
