Books Info:

The Outsiders free pdf Ponyboy can count on his brothers and his friends, but not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids who get away with everything, including beating up greasers like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect--until the night someone takes things too far. Written forty-five years ago, S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was written.

About S.E. Hinton

S. E. Hinton s career as an author began while she was still a student at Will Rogers High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Disturbed by the clashes of the two gangs in her high school, the Greasers and the Socs, Hinton wrote "The Outsiders," an honest, sometimes shocking novel told from the point of view of a fourteen-year-old Greaser named Ponyboy Curtis. "The Outsiders" was published during Hinton s freshman year at the University of Tulsa and was an immediate sensation. Today, with more than fourteen million copies in print, it is the best-selling young adult novel of all time. The book was also made into a film in 1983, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and featuring budding young stars Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, and Rob Lowe. "The Outsiders" brought with it publicity and fame. S. E. Hinton became known as The Voice of the Youth. This overnight success also brought a lot of pressure, resulting in a three-year-long writer s block. Her boyfriend (now husband) eventually helped break this block by suggesting she write two pages a day before going anywhere. This ultimately led to her second novel, "That Was Then, This Is Now," which was made into a film in 1985, starring Emilio Estevez. Ms. Hinton went on to write several other novels, including "Rumble Fish" and "Tex." In 1988 she was awarded the first annual Margaret A. Edwards Award, given in honor of an author whose book or books, over a period of time, have been accepted by young people as an authentic voice that continues to illuminate their experiences and emotions, giving insight into their lives. S. E. Hinton still lives in Oklahoma with her husband, where she enjoys writing, riding horses, and taking courses at the university."
