S. E. Hinton wrote her first novel, The Outsiders, when she was 16. She was the recipient of the ALA's first Margaret A. Edwards Award, which honors authors -whose books have provided young adults with a window through which they can view their world and which will help them to grow and to understand themselves and their role in society.- The author lives in Tulsa, OK.From the Inside Flap:
"A powerful story. . . . Travis is Everyteen: part insecure hell-raiser, part closet intellectual, prone to both sneers and tears. Hinton continues to grow more reflective in her books, but her great understanding, not of what teenagers are but of what they can hope to be, is undiminished."--"Kirkus Reviews
