There is many differences in the book and the movie.The book is more detailed than the movie for a example Soda’s girlfriend sandy is in the book, but the movie never talks about her. In the book it says that soda wanted to marry sandy that he loves her. Also in the movie, Dally’s Death was more of a big deal. First he got shot by the grocery store person he shot him once on his back. He got shot because he robbed a grocery store and he ran from the police who shot Dally. In the book it says that he got shot and he died.
The similar things are the burning church and johnny dies. And they won the rumble and ponny boy almost died in the rumble.
