The Outsider is about two rival gangs in New York. This book starts with Ponyboy coming out of the movie house and getting jumped by the Socs. Then Ponyboy begans to describe the rest of the Greasers. The next day Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally go to the movie. At the movie Dally flirts with one of the Socs, and Johnny tells him off so he leaves the movie house. At night Johnny and Ponyboy finds themselves sleeping in an empty lot.
When Ponyboy gets home he gets screamed at by his oldest brother, and then get slapped. So he runsaway with Johnny to the park. At the Park the Socs try to drown Ponyboy so Johnny stabs one of them. Then Johnny and Ponyboy both go to see Dally. Dally listens to their story and gives them the supplies they need and send them to a near by town.
