When it was first published in 1967, The Outsiders defied convention with its immediate, deeply sympathetic portrayal of Ponyboy and his struggle to find a place for himself in a difficult world. Thirty years later, it speaks to teenagers as powerfully as ever.Puffin is proud to publish this contemorary classic for a new generation of readers.

This is an awesome book that I first encountered in high school. This book is well written and has amazing character development. This book can help students that have lost one or both parents in life. These are situations that many students may be in and can help them and their families excel.
Every teenage boy needs to read this.....User Review - searing2 - Overstock.com
