Book Description

Oct. 6 1997
The 45th anniversary of a landmark work of teen fiction

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.

Written 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.

Product Description

From Amazon

According to Ponyboy, there are two kinds of people in the world: greasers and socs. A soc (short for "social") has money, can get away with just about anything, and has an attitude longer than a limousine. A greaser, on the other hand, always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back. Ponyboy is a greaser, and he's always been proud of it, even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers--until one terrible night when his friend Johnny kills a soc. The murder gets under Ponyboy's skin, causing his bifurcated world to crumble and teaching him that pain feels the same whether a soc or a greaser. This classic, written by S. E. Hinton when she was 16 years old, is as profound today as it was when it was first published in 1967. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


Taut with tension, filled with drama. (Chicago Tribune)

5.0 out of 5 stars Class Novel Study April 17 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My students are enjoying listening to the novel in our class. The voice of the narrator has the southern drawl you would expect to hear in Oklahoma!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favourites July 25 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this in one night! It's short, sweet and is a beautiful story of friendship and growing up. The characters in it are very compelling and I felt like I was friends with them all by the end. This book pulled me into the time period and kept me interested with the action and emotion. I couldn't really understand why I loved it so much; maybe it was how well I identified with Ponyboy, or maybe it was how close I felt to the characters and how invested I was in their lives, but the reason doesn't really matter. This is simply a must-read novel for all teens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Present March 3 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a present for my grandson who really loved it. It was
recommended to me by a young man who said it was the only
book he ever enjoyed. He was a very knowledgable manager at
The Source with rings in his ears so I was intrigued. My grandson
who is a very thoughtful, privelledged child was deeply moved by the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Emotions and Relationships Like No Other! Jan. 12 2013
By Avery Greaves TOP 500 REVIEWER
Admittedly going into this book I was somewhat determined not to like it- for one reason, it's completely out of my comfort zone (that being YA pararnormal and dystopian/ post-apocalyptic), for another, I had to read it for school (I cannot recall having ever finished a novel for school in its entirely, especially during high school). However, all that effort to not like it was to was to no avail- when all is said and done, I really enjoyed this book and it's safe to say that it completely exceeded my expectations.

After finishing this book the two elements which stick out to me most are the emotions and the relationships. In reading YA over the years I have grown so accustomed to the male characters being "bad boys"- cocky arrogant, and charming to the nth degree, however, despite all of that they have nothing on these boys. I've come to realize that those "bad boys" are fooling themselves, their "badness" (and all of the emotions surrounding it) is such a facade and superficial. These boys, from Soda, with a larger-than-life personality and who brings a smile to everyone's face, not unlike the beverage he derives his name from does, to Darry, stuck in a "between" state, due to putting his brothers before himself, to Dally, who isn't near as jaded as he lets himself come off of as, to Johnny, who, out of his death, inspires new life, to Ponyboy, a young man truly trying to find where he fits in the crazy world that he was born into, experience real and raw emotions- while they certainly have swagger, they aren't afraid to cry whenever need be (it was refreshing and I think that authors of the twenty-first century could certainly learn a thing or two from this author of the mid-twentieth-century).

5.0 out of 5 stars IT WAS AWESOME!! March 14 2006
By raji
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my favourite book of all times. I have read this book over six times and I love it the same amount all times. I first read this book when i was ten but never quite understood it fully but I re-read the book in grade six from a different point of view and then that was when I fell in love with this book. It makes me cry every time I read this book and trust me it takes a lot to make me cry. I recommend this book to everyone and you can really relate to this book. I promise you it will not you disappoint or waste any time.

5.0 out of 5 stars still amazing after all these years April 25 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
this is the book that changed my life. i first read it as a teenager and recently re-read it. the emotions are still there, as are the fascinating characters like ponyboy and sodapop. i gave a copy to one of my nephews who is known to be a reluctant reader. he loved it just as much as i did, despite the 20+ year gap between us.
