The Outsiders - Johny

Johnny's role in the novel "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton is important. As the story begins, Johnny kills a Soc, another gang, in an attempt to save Ponyboy who was being drowned. With Dally's help, Johnny and ponyboy escaped. While they were waiting for news from Dally, they took refuge in an old isolated church. Couple long days later, Dally turned up with news and took them for a drive to a food station. Later in the day while they were driving back, they saw the awful sight of the old church up in flames. Ponyboy and Johnny went in the ablazed church to save the trapped children before the church collapsed. Before Johnny could come out, a beam fell down and broke his spine as well as a 3rd degree burn. Near the end Jhonney died as a hero with the finale words of "Stay gold".
