In the Outsiders book, Ponyboy explains what's different between a Soc and a Greaser,
and tells his story about what has happened to him during the whole Soc and Greaser competition of who's best.
First, Ponyboy ends up stumbling along several Socs while walking out the movie house. They all gang up on him, but before Ponyboy could get seriously injured, the Greasers try to chase the Socs off, protecting Ponyboy from any further danger.
Then, Ponyboy gains the courage to go to the movie house again, but with Dally and Johnny this time. Soon, Dally starts picking on Cherry and Marcia, but Johnny tells him to leave them alone. After, Cherry befriends Ponyboy and Johnny, saying how grateful she is that Johnny stood up to Dally. Once they decide to go with Marcia and Cherry, a bunch of Socs pop up, Marcia and Cherry's boyfriends, who are drunk. Due to rude remarks, Ponyboy and Johnny ran off into the lot, in hope of the Socs leaving them alone.
After, Ponyboy and Johnny ends up sleeping at the lot by accident; once Ponyboy returns home, Darry gets mad, hits him, and caused Ponyboy to run back at the lot, and telling Johnny to run away with him. Soon, the Socs come back, nearly drowning Ponyboy, which made Johnny kill Bob. Furthermore, they go to Dally for help, earning themselves some money and a gun to travel to an old church to hide in for awhile. After about 2-4 weeks, Ponyboy and Johnny end up setting the church on fire on accident,
and rushed inside the church to find the missing children that went in awhile back. Finally, Ponyboy and Johnny saved the children, but Johnny ends up dying, along with Dally, and Ponyboy goes back into living with his two older brothers again.
