Synopsis: A heroic story of friendship and belonging.

Ponyboy can count on his brothers. And on his friends. 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 “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect–until the night someone takes things too far.

The word h**l is used twice. There are fights, deaths, and a fire. Nothing other than thinking girls are attractive.
Characterization Plot Overall Rating
Some of the most believable juvenile delinquents I've read or seen. These are people, not stereotypes. There's a reason it's on all those reading lists.
This book grabbed me as a teen and wouldn't let go until I'd read it through twice. The characters and events feel so real, so possible, that even now, I sometimes forget it's fiction.
