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

I have found this book to be very intriguing, at times I would catch myself actually reading this book for hours at a time. Very addictive book it is, and I dont say that about alot of books. Definately worth the buy, either on iTunes, or at a bookstore. I would definately recommend this to people 10 years of age and up. Five stars!
I thought that this book was one of the best books I've ever read.
I had to read this book last year for english. Everyone thought this book would be boring but once we read a few pages no one could stop. This is one of my all time favorite books. It will not disapoint.
