The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
“At a time when the average young-adult novel was, in Hinton’s characterization, ‘Mary Jane went to the prom,’ ‘The Outsiders’ shocked readers with its frank depictions of adolescents smoking, drinking and ‘rumbling.’ […] By contrast, ‘The Outsiders’ was a story ‘for teenagers, about teenagers, written by a teenager.’ Hinton’s candid, canny appraisal of the conflict between Socs, or Socials, and Greasers (for which one might substitute Jets and Sharks), published when she was 17, was an immediate hit and remains the best-selling young-adult novel of all time.”
