And when it comes to the Socsa vicious gang of rich kids who enjoy beating up on "greasers" like him and his friendshe knows that he can count on them for trouble. But one night someone takes things too far, and Ponyboy's world is turned upside down...

"Taut with tension, filled with drama." 
The Chicago Tribune
