Summary

More
Ponyboy Curtis is a good-natured teen who loves books and movies. He's also an orphan whose two older brothers and street-smart friends guard and protect him. Together these ragtag, working-class boys—known as "greasers" to the locals—try to make their way in the world, without privilege, supervision, or education.

But it isn't easy. A bunch of wealthy kids—called the "Socs"—target Ponyboy and his friends. They bully, mock, and ridicule the greasers. Until one night they push the greasers too far, and violence explodes. Now young Ponyboy has a decision to make: Does he run or does he stand his ground and try to find justice?

This realistic novel was written by a first-time teen author no older than the characters she depicted. The story remains as hard-hitting and important today as when it was published in 1967.
