In S.E. Hintons The Outsiders, Cherry is a spirited character that doesnt perfectly fit into the Soc mold. When she first meets Dally, she is bold enough to stand up to his harsh language. The novel states, She gave him an incredulous look; and then she threw her Coke in his face. That might cool you off, greaser. After you wash your mouth and learn to talk and act decent, I might cool off, too. Dally wiped the Coke off his face with his sleeve and smiled dangerously (22). This shows that

Cherry is in a situation where she should be scared, but instead she is tough. She faces the scariest greaser and even challenges him by throwing coke all over him. Although Cherry responds this way to Dally, she quickly invites Johnny and Ponyboy to join her and Marcia. Overall, it is clear through her actions and her open conversations with Pony in chapter 3 that she isnt a typical aloof Soc.
