Publisher's Summary

Rusty-James wants to be just like his big brother, the Motorcycle Boy. He wants to be the toughest streetfighter on this side of the city, to keep his cool when things get dangerous, and to laugh when gang members challenge him to fight. Rusty-James isn't book-smart; he depends on his fists more often than his brains. So far, the Motorcycle Boy has bailed him out when his fists have gotten him into trouble.
But one night when Rusty-James ventures out of his neighborhood turf, his world is shattered by an explosive chain of events. And this time, the Motorcycle Boy isn't around to pick up the pieces.

Rusty James and the Motorcycle Boy…

I have been a fan of S.E. Hinton since grade school having read all of her novels (way, way back in the day) and thought I would revisit her works with Rumble Fish. Not as popular as The Outsiders, I always liked Rumble Fish and even now in my forties can see the brilliant insight Hinton has when it comes to adolescence. This story follows Rusty James, who thinks he wants to be just like his older brother, the Motorcycle Boy, without really knowing his brother at all. If you enjoyed the “rough and tough” world of the Outsiders, then you’ll enjoy Rumble Fish. Great read/listen and Tom Stechschulte does an excellent job with the narration.

not a big fan

basically only listened to book so I could help the kid with his English. I didn't really enjoy it. Not sure why it is considered a new classic
