1 Cliffs Notes for Hinton's The Outsiders [Secure eReader]
by Janet Clark
  This novel of the 1960s is a story about teenagers written by a teenager. Ponyboy Curtis, a 14-year-old boy, struggles with right and wrong in a society within which he feels he is an outsider. He and his brothers, lower-class "greasers," fight the "Socs," the rich kids, for 14 days. Social issues gaining notice in the '60s--teen pregnancy, underage drinking, and violence--still find relevance among S.E. Hinton's readers today.
