Synopsis

In Ponyboy's world there are two types of people. There are the Socs, the rich society kids who get away with anything. Then there are the greasers, like Ponyboy, who aren't so lucky. Ponyboy has a few things he can count on: his older brothers, his friends, and trouble with the Socs, whose idea of a good time is beating up greasers like Ponyboy. At least he know what to  expect – until the night things go too far...The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction."The Outsiders transformed young-adult fiction from a genre mostly about prom queens, football players and high school crushes to one that portrayed a darker, truer world."  The New York Times"Taut with tension, filled with drama."  The Chicago Tribune"[A] classic coming-of-age book."  Philadelphia Daily News"What it's like to live lonely and unwanted and cornered by circumstance...There is rawness and violence here, but honest hope, too."  National Observer
