Read this excerpt from The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. I had a long walk home and no company, but I usually lone it anyway, for no reason except that I like to watch movies undisturbed so I can get into them and live them with the actors. When I see a movie with someone it’s kind of uncomfortable, like having someone read your book over your shoulder. I’m different that way. What is a universal theme found in this excerpt? Belonging to a community is important. Being alone is not always a bad thing. Family life is not always easy. Hard work can overcome obstacles.

    I will give you some hints that might lead you to the answer that i'm thinking since I can't just tell you under the code of conduct. During the excerpt, he is talking about not being with other people. He explains the reasons why he feels watching a movie alone is easier.
