It is set in the 1960s in a small American town and revolves around two rival groups of teenagers, the Greasers and the Socs (pronounced "so-shiz," short for Socials).

The story is narrated by Ponyboy Curtis, a 14-year-old Greaser, who provides an insightful and firsthand account of the tensions and conflicts between the two groups. The Greasers are a gang of working-class boys with a distinct style, while the Socs are wealthier and often antagonize the Greasers. The novel explores themes of social class, friendship, family, and the struggles of adolescence.

The characters are well-drawn, and the novel delves into the complexities of identity and societal expectations. The book has been a staple in many school curricula and continues to be a popular and influential work in young adult literature.

The novel was adapted into a film in 1983, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. S.E. Hinton's exploration of societal divides and the challenges faced by young people has made "The Outsiders" a timeless and enduring work in the realm of young adult fiction.
