    I need to find a classroom book set for the book The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton. I've taught using this book for the last couple of years, and it is absolutely my kids' favorite book. However, I borrowed it from a neighbor teacher of mine, and she recently took a job at another school, and the books are going with her. eBay doesn't have any sets, and the websites I've found are just too expensive to buy an entire set. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    I would love to sneak them out of the bookroom and mail them to you. We have a class set and no one has taught it in years. It is too low level for high school.

    Argh, it's so hard sitting here, and not being able to chime in. So I'm glad others did. And I'll let my signature do the rest of the talking....

    There are over 50 book sets on my book shelves at the moment....
