Is it better to be an individual or conform to expectations just to fit in like others? This choice is faced by Ponyboy Curtis, the narrator, throughout S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. He belongs to the Greasers, a group of delinquent friends, who are viewed by many as poor and dangerous, while the rival Socs are viewed as rich, smart, and powerful causing the Greasers to envy them. Ponyboy learns from Randy Adderson, a Soc who is trapped by stereotype threat, that their lives are not as perfect as he expected it to be and they too face problems.
Greasers were a social status in a way and were frowned upon by the higher-ups. Most of them tend to have more street smarts than actual academical smarts, while the socs, the group that is higher up and opposes the Greasers, tend to be the other way around. But Ponyboy stands apart from this general way of thinking, unlike his fellow greasers he enjoys reading, running track, and even likes to watch sunsets. He has a heart like no other in this book, or in our world. Throughout the book, he is faced with many unexpected obstacles.

So he returned his straitened means to his pocket, and gave up the idea of trying to buy the boys. At this dark and hopeless moment an inspiration burst upon him!
