The Outsiders is an outstanding story of teenage rebellion, written
when the author was only 17 years old. It is one of The Originals
from Penguin - iconic, outspoken, first. Youngsters in a small
Oklahoma town have split into two gangs, divided by money, tastes
and attitude. The Socs' idea of having a good time is beating up
Greasers like Ponyboy Curtis. Ponyboy knows what to expect and
knows he can count on his brothers and friends - until the night
someone takes things too far.
