A heroic story of friendship and belonging

No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that he's got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. And when it comes to the Socs—a vicious gang of rich kids who enjoy beating up on "greasers" like him and his friends—he knows that he can count on them for trouble. But one night someone takes things too far, and Ponyboy's world is turned upside down...

Written over forty-five years ago, The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published.

"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

    I am reading this book in class. I thought it was going to be really bad because the teacher picked it but it is really good. The character descriptions are very detailed "I have green-grey eyes but I wish they were more grey because I don't like most the guys I know with green eyes."

    So we had to read this for school. And I wasn't too excited. In fact I was like this: >:( But I read it. And read it. And finished it. And cried. And now I feel all mopey and sad. Accurate portrayal of the problems of that time period. (Or so I hear. I'm not that old. Definitely not. Not even close.) But I loved it. (Duh.) and now I have learned always to thrust English teachers. This book was written when the author was a teen and that is just amazing. WHOOP! =(.0.)= P.S. I am thirteen and a bookworm and obviously this story isn't for everyone but I very much enjoyed it. (See, I'm not THAT old!!)
