Synopsis

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

AudiobooksNow review by Elizabeth on 2011-01-08 19:17:34

Now this book in the simpelest way to summarize is about a group of social losers and stereotyped by everyone else as hoodlums which you will notice is used to describe the outsiders.There actions are justified by being the way they survive and the ways things are for them.Also it shows how humans feel that there outsiders or feel lonely at one point in there life.Also the ending is somewhat bitter sweet.a box of kleenix is recommended for the faint at heart.also there is personal revolution and twist ending that is quite clever! enjoy and read!
