S.E. Hinton's gritty story returns in the hardcover The Outsiders: 40th Anniversary Edition, published with the original cover art. Hinton's first novel, written at the age of 16, has since introduced generations of readers to Ponyboy, a so-called Greaser from the wrong side of the tracks, and the fierce rivalry between the Greasers and the Socs (short for Socials). With more than 13 million copies sold to date, the relevance of this modern classic has not waned. (Viking, $17.99 192p ages 12-up ISBN 9780-670-06251-5; Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Main Description
The 45th anniversary of a landmark work of teen fiction Ponyboy can count on his brothers and his friends, but not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids who get away with everything, including beating up greasers like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect--until the night someone takes things too far. Written forty-five years ago, S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was written.
Main Description
Written over forty years ago, S. E. Hinton's classic story of the struggle between the Socs and the Greasers remains as powerful today as it was the day it was written, and it is taught in schools nationwide. Now available in a great new package with an improved trim size, a stunning new cover, and bonus material. Designed with classroom use in mind, the new edition will maintain the same pagination as the previous edition.
Unpaid Annotation
When it was first published in 1967, "The Outsiders" defied convention with its immediate, deeply sympathetic portrayal of Ponyboy and his struggle to find a place for himself in a difficult world. Thirty years later, it speaks to teenagers as powerfully as ever.
