The setting in Outsiders is in the west side of town where the Greasers. The situation is the socs and the main socs is bob. The main characters in the Greaser gang is Darry, Dally, Soda, Ponyboy, and Johnny.
The rising action is the socs were drowning Ponyboy so in self-defense Johnny had to stab the leader Bob to scare the boys away to save Ponyboy.
The climax of this story is Johnny's death. Dally and Ponyboy were in the room when he passed. This wasvery hard on Dally because Johnny was the only thing Dally had.
Dally robs a store and once he is facing the cops he pulls out his gun. Dally did this knowing he would die. Ponyboy knew that a part Dally did not want to living knowing Johnny was dead.
In the resolution Ponyboy found a note Johhny had written before he passed. The note stated Johnny telling him that he still has time to be the person he wants to become.
My favorite part would have to be when Ponyboy realizes that everything Dally did was not because he hated Ponyboy, it was because Dally loved him!
