The Outsides by SE Hinton
Ponyboy can count on his brothers and his friends, but not on much else
besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids who get away
with everything, including beating up greasers like Ponyboy. At least he
knows what to expect--until the night someone takes things too far.
forty-five years ago, 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 written.
