This story takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Some of the characters are Ponyboy, Sodapop, Darry, and Dally, and the Soc's.
Stay gold ponyboy
In the rising action, Ponyboy and Johnny both have conflicts resulting in them running away. Johnny's parents dont love him, and Ponyboy's older brother Darry hit him.
They then went to an abandonded church to live at. While there were people in the church, the church caught on fire.
As the fire spread, Johnny and Ponyboy went back inside the church to save lives. As a result, Johnny ends up in the hospital because his back has burned and Dally ends up in the hospital too.
As a result of everything happening, Johnny dies, which makes Dally lose his mind. He robs a store, and gets surrounded by cops, which then he lets them shoot him because he is mourning the only thng he loves.
Both of them gone in one week..
My favorite part is when Dally lets the police shoot him. Not because he dies, but because it shows how much he loved his little brother enough to let someone take his own life, and it was the most interesting part of the story.
