Coming from the wrong side of town, he's a Greaser and his high school rivals are the Socs -- the kids who have the money, the attitude and can get away with anything.

But one night someone goes to far, and Ponyboy's world begins to crumble. What are the themes? Growing up, friendship, rivalry, loyalty, urban life.
