I think that Roll Of Thunder Hear My Cry and The Outsiders are similar because of the three reasons. My first reason is that they both have battles, like in the book the outsiders it's socs vs greasers and in the book roll of thunder hear my cry it's the black vs the black people. My second reason is that they have an elite team in each books. The white people in the boo Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry and in the book the outsiders the elite team is the socs. My third reason is that the greasers and the black people are treated poorly in both books. these are the three reasons why they are similar.
