1 BY SE HINTON The Outsiders Ponyboy Curtis is a Greaser. He lives on the wrong side of town. He acts tough, dresses tough, and lets his hair grow long to look tough. He lives with his two older brothers, Darry and Sodapop, and they barely make ends meet. Darry and Soda work hard to support themselves and let Ponyboy stay in school so that at least one person in the family can graduate high school. Pony's best friend is a sad boy named Johnny Cade who's been beaten around one too many times and spends a lot of time looking over his shoulder, anticipating the next blow. The only family these boys have are their group of Greaser friends who watch each other's backs and defend each other. When the Socs (rich kids from the other side of town) come looking for trouble they run into dangerous Dally, funny Two-bit, and somber Steve. Through Ponyboy's eyes we catch an eloquent glimpse into the life of a group of teenagers the world seems to have forgotten, who take life's knocks on the chin and somehow keep going.
