Main characters are introduced to the story such as Johnny, Dally, and also Ponyboy.
Here is where the setting ended up leading to the climax. Pony came home and darry got very mad at him and things escalated
This shows when johnny and ponyboy ran away from home because dally hit pony and socs found the greasers and they ended up trying to drown pony and johnny killed the soc. The boys then ran to Dally for help, he gave the boys $50 a gun, and a place to go.
The church that Johnny and Pony were staying in decided to burned down. The boys then decided to help out the children who were stuck in the church. Johnny while rescuing the children then was struck by a burning board which ended up killing him.
This is where Pony realizes that he'll be okay. He also finally ends the book as if the story was his own.
My favorite part is when Dally pushes/hits Ponyboy and he runs away with Johnny. I like this part of the book because it escalates the story a bit more and excites me more also.
