this book has been my all time favorite since sixth grade and i've been re-reading it once or twice a year since then. it's that good. you can see my obession in my siggy and avatar. *grin* i just love rob lowe as sodapop curtis. my persona is most like soda and two-bit, not so much like steve. since they are no sequels to this book, i enjoy reading a bunch of fanfiction based on it. mostly the stories that cover a lot of drama like cancer, suicide, and mental problems like that. currently, i'm reading this one about cutting and possible suicide. real sad so far. that's what makes great outsiders fics. let me know if you want the links to some really good ones i've read.

hi well I heard it is a serious book that takes a hard look at class differences and cliques, poverty and a lack of choices. It's very sad and moving.

omg valle! you absolutely must read this book! it's my fave of all time since sixth grade. eek! here's the synopsis from the back of my copy:

a heroic story of friendship and belonging

ponyboy can count on his brothers. and on his friends. but not much else besides trouble with the socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up "greasers" like Ponyboy. at least he knows what to expect--until the night someone takes things too far.

s.e. hinton is the author. she wrote this when she was 16, in 1966. (i'm so jealous!) she grew up and still lives in tulsa, oklahoma.

I didn-t read it but I read Rumble Fish from the same writer some yearsago, and I think it is about the same social problems.
If you enjoy Outsiders, take a look at Rumble Fish and ...watch the movie from FF Coppola
