S.E. Hinton's book, “The Outsiders”, is a well written fictional novel. The book tells the story of a boy named Ponyboy Curtis and his brothers, Sodapop and Darry. They belong to a group of poor teenage boys called Greasers. The Socs are a group of wealthy, privileged boys who beat them up for fun. So, in other words, these two groups of teenagers are "rival gangs". Ponyboy feels he is not wanted because of the way his brothers treat him. Instead, he sees Darry was just being overprotective when he yelled at him. Toward the end of the novel Ponyboy feels for the first time he and his two brothers form a family.
