You’ll stagger under the knockout punch of this gangland classic, written by a teenager who knew that life first-hand. On the mean streets of Ponyboy’s Oklahoma town, it’s Greasers vs. Socs – poor kids vs. the rich kids who despise them. The privileged Socs can get away with anything. The Greasers only have each other. Fighting a fierce turf war, the gangs are trapped in constant battle. But one night, the violence goes too far – and Ponyboy’s world explodes. A boy is dead. Two more are wanted for murder. How can it all end? Hitting harder than a champ boxer, this book defined teen America. Read it, and watch the classic film too.
