BLAH writes the following about The Outsiders :
Ponyboy, Soda, and Darry are brothers struggling to cope with the loss of both of their parents in a fatal car accident. At the tender age of 20, Darry must work two jobs to provide for his brothers and try to keep the family together. Easy-going "Sodapop" has dropped out of high school at sixteen and is working at a gas station. Though there is tension between fourteen-year-old Ponyboy and Darry, and Pony is the hope of the family. He's an intelligent student who may have the opportunity to attend college if he can earn a scholarshipóDarry's unfulfilled dream. Even though Pony's intelligence and love of books and movies somewhat sets him apart from his brothers and the rest of their gang, Pony is devoted to them all. A vicious rivalry pits their gang of "greasers" vs. the "socs" (socials)ó the wealthy kids from the west side. When Pony and his friend Johnny befriend two "soc" girls at the movies, things become more complicated than ever. Tension mounts when Pony and Cherry (a popular cheerleader) are seen together; deadly violence erupts, changing their lives forever
