The Outsiders by S.E. Hiton
The story of “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton is a book about a boy named Ponyboy who lived in a rough neighborhood. He was a in a group called the greasers. He and his friend, Johnny Cade, are not the normal kind of greaser like the others. One night they run to the park to get away from Pony’s older brother, Darry, after he hits Ponyboy. They get into a fight with the other group, the east side Socs. This is the turning point in the story where Pony and Johnny run away to Windrixville. Pony doesn’t know it yet, but this impacts his brothers Darry and Sodapop greatly. The Curtis brothers have many differences and this part brings out the similarities.
Ponyboy is the sensitive one who cares about everyone in the group of the greasers. He views Darry as a father figure, since their parents died when they were little.
