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

It was really good, the book, I can't seem to find the actual book on the search, so... I can really see this as a great book for travel, as it is pretty easy and quick to read. It should have the honor of being a family book, as it isn't to dry (like cheesy young adult novels) and not to complicated (like cheesy romance novels.) It's considered a classic, but isn't not entertaining for children 8-12.

this book is an amazing story, it kind of relates to my own life, and I love it, I have read and seen the book and film and they both blew me away! I think this book has given a great look at the lives of the greaser social group and a powerfull story of family, friendship and trust
