9780140385724: The Outsiders

50 years of an iconic classic! This international bestseller and inspiration for a beloved movie is 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. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up on “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect—until the night someone takes things too far.

The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction that laid the groundwork for the YA genre. 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

New York Herald Tribune Best Teenage Book

Winner of the Massachusetts Children's Book Award

Review:

According to Ponyboy, there are two kinds of people in the world: greasers and socs. A soc (short for "social") has money, can get away with just about anything, and has an attitude longer than a limousine. A greaser, on the other hand, always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back. Ponyboy is a greaser, and he's always been proud of it, even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers--until one terrible night when his friend Johnny kills a soc. The murder gets under Ponyboy's skin, causing his bifurcated world to crumble and teaching him that pain feels the same whether a soc or a greaser. This classic, written by S. E. Hinton when she was 16 years old, is as profound today as it was when it was first published in 1967.

From the Publisher:

Ponyboy is fourteen, tough and confused, yet sensitive behind his bold front. Since his parents' death, his loyalties have been to his brothers and his gang, the rough, swinging, long-haired boys from the wrong side of the tracks. When his best friend, Johnny, kills a member of a rival gang, a nightmare of violence begins and swiftly envelops Ponyboy in a turbulent chain of events.

Book Description Speak. 1 Paperback(s), 2008. soft. Book Condition: New. (Winner of a Massachusetts Children's Book Award and an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults) This groundbreaking 1967 novel about rival high-school gangs of "greasers" and "socialites," ready to fight at the least provocation, was the inspiration for Francis Ford Coppola's 1983 film of the same name, a production the author was very much a part of. Told by Ponyboy, the youngest in a family of three orphaned boys, the story for readers 12 and up explores themes of class conflict, fraternal love, and fleeting beauty. Unusually honest and gritty, S.E. Hinton's novel depicts the teen violence she experienced growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and along with being named an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults, it has also appeared on the ALA's list of 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books. 180.
