This book is about a gang generally known as "Greasers" who are in a gang war with high class teens known as "Socs". It takes place in the mid 1960's and involves a boy name Ponyboy who is 14 years old. He and his gang have been fighting the Socs for a while now and Ponyboy thinks it is about time they did something about it. His friend Johnny and he are walking in the park late one night and a group of Socs come up on them with the smell of booze present on them. Johnny ends up doing something crazy, and they have to run away and stay hidden for a while.
I really like this book! It is a very easy book to get into and very interesting.
I would definitely recommend this book to others. It is a very versatile book for readers of all ages. Anybody from the ages of 13 and order I feel will find this book very fun to read.
