9780141312521: The Outsiders (Puffin Teenage Fiction)

Greasers, Rockers, different place, different name; but wherever they are, they're outsiders, the rough, tough, long-haired boys from the 'other side' of town, with little hope of Mustangs, madras shirts and the good things of American life in the sixties. Their story is told by Ponyboy, a Greaser with good reason to fear the lucky boys in Mustangs, and a witness to the savage baiting that leads his best friend to manslaughter. More than a story of hatred and violence, also a story of loyalty and friendship as teenagers of the urban slums search for personal dignity and a place in the world.

From the Back Cover:

‘You know what a greaser is?’ Bob asked. ‘White trash with long hair.’

I felt the blood draining from my face. ‘You know what a Soc is? White trash with Mustangs and madras.’ And then, because I couldn’t think of anything bad enough to call them, I spat at them.

Bob shook his head, smiling slowly. ‘You could use a bath, greaser. And a good working over.’

The Soc caught my arm and twisted it behind my back, and shoved my face into the fountain. I fought, but the hand at the back of my neck was strong. I’m drowning, I thought, they’ve gone too far…
