In the book there are two different gangs. One gang is called the greasers and the other is called the Socs. the greasers are tough and less fortunate where as the socs are rich and very high-class. The two gangs have a rivalry but the book is about the main character named Pony-boy who is in the Greaser gang.

The best part is when Pony finds out that not everything is perfect in the socs lives either. Or as Cherry put it "things are rough all around."

This is a historical fiction book. It's about Leonardo Da Vinci and why he devoted a lot of time painting a simple merchant's wife. This painting is the Mona Lisa which is still really famous today.

I liked how this book was set in Italy and I really want to go there. It was set in the Renaissance period and I'm going to learn about that next year in school.
