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.

Annotation

Three brothers struggle to stay together after their parents' death, as they search for an identity among the conflicting values of their adolescent society in which they find themselves "outsiders."

User Review

Setting
It took place somewhere in Oklahoma, the effect of it being a small town in Oklahoma everyone knew everybody. So what happened in a corner everyone knew about it.
Characters
Ponyboy Curtis and Sodapop were the main characters and Darrel is the second character that comes out but never is mentioned as a main character.
Good Points
the best were the conflicts between both gangs and the feelings that went through
Bad Points
Could've had more action and drama.
Plot Summary
Two gangs from Oklahoma, fight against each other for being one side poor and the other rish.
Ending
