In Tulsa, Oklahoma in the 1960s there is tension between the classes. Rich Socs and low class Greasers. This is a story about a 14 year old greaser boy, named Ponyboy, growing up in such tensions with his brothers and his gang. When something happens after Ponyboy and a friend come home from the drive in theater, all of their lives turn upside down.
As I said before this is one of my favorite books. I can relate to the characters well. I am not a high class girl and the boys described in the book remind me of any boys next door where I am from. "The Outsiders" actually made me cry you'll have to read to find out why though. Sorry.
I would recommend this coming of age story to any class or age after 11. Just remember to Stay Gold and dream on my fellow working class citizens.
Here is the movie trailer( All the guys in it are hot, just saying):FYI the trailer sucks
