I’m going to give some background information so all of the causes
and effects make sense, this will include a brief summary and a list
of the most important characters from the book.
This book takes place in the 1960’s and is about a 14 year old boy
named Ponyboy ( that’s his real name). Ponyboy’s parents are dead
and his two brothers, Darry and Sodapop have to live alone on the
dangerous part of town. Well, not completely alone. Ponyboy and
his brothers are greasers and are in a gang made up of a bunch of
delinquents. One day, Ponyboy and one of his friends from the
gang, Jhonny, are jumped by a group of Socs, the rich, spoiled kids
who throw beer blasts and beat up greasers for fun. They try to
drown Ponyboy, and Jhonny kills one of them with a switchblade.
They soon go into hiding.
