The Author
Susan Eloise Hinton was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She has always enjoyed reading but wasn't satisfied with the literature that was being written for young adults, which influenced her to write novels like The Outsiders. That book, her first novel, was published in 1967 by Viking.

As she grew up in her teens she realized that nothing interested her as much as she wanted. The typical ‘girl meets boy’ stories were very emblematic and monotonous for her. She wanted something more realistic; a story about what it is really like in the teenage. So taking inspiration from real life and events that had happened in her life she created a story of two gangs and their rivalry.
