S.E. Hinton’s gritty coming-of-age story follows the “Greasers,”  narrator Ponyboy Curtis and his friends,  as they navigate teenage angst and class warfare in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In this coming-of-age story, Ponyboy struggles with right and wrong in a society in which he believes that he is an outsider. “As he steps out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house” a series of events unfold that prove to Ponyboy that the hardships that greasers and their rivals, the “Socs” face may take different practical forms, but that the members of both groups—and youths everywhere—must inevitably come to terms with fear, love, and sorrow.
