The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton ~ Paperback Edition
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. At least he knows what to expect-until the night things go too far. ~Written over 40 years ago, The Outsiders> continues to reach students today through its true portrait of the bonds and boundaries of friendship.
