The Outsiders is a coming-of-age novel by S. E. Hinton, first published in 1967. Hinton was 15 when she started writing the novel but did most of the work when she was 16 and a junior in high school.

The story is told in first-person perspective by teenaged protagonist Ponyboy Curtis.

I landed my first role... I would like to thank Explore Talent for everything they have done on my behalf. This is by far the easiest and most efficent way to look for jobs. I have landed my first role in an upcoming movie featuring Wendy Williams, Lil' Kim and Vanessa Williams. I have also landed a second role in an independent film shooting in October. Finally I am also up for a new web sitcom. I could not have acheived this much success in so little time without Explore Talent. Thanks again. - Ishmael Blue
