I think the moral about “The Outsiders” is: take care of yourself, don’t judge a book by its cover, and people should not be stereotyped.
I think the theme “Don’t judge a book by its cover” is important because e.g.-Ponyboy, he looks tough and could be scary in a dark ally but he loves sunsets, going to movies, reading, his family and friends.
I think with “Take care of yourself” for “The Outsiders” novel because you could end up as a person like Dally, he’s mean, but he can be nice, he only cares about himself usually, and he didn’t take care of his body (He drank and smoked).
I think that with Johnny getting beat up by Socs (which they beat up Johnny really bad) still doesn’t mean that all Socs are bad. Same with Dally, he's a Greaser but he's really mean and all but he can still be nice, e.g. when Dally found out that Johnny died, he felt that he didn’t care about any one else.
