In the climax, Jonny, Ponyboy's bestfriend dies. This makes Ponyboy realize a lot about things. It changes the way he thinks.
During the exposition, Dally gets shot by the police on his way running away from stealing a store. He had lots of pain come from Jonny's death. He didn't want to live anymore.
During the Resolution, Ponyboy goes to court and is found not guilty. Things start to go back to normal. His teacher asks him to write an essay about a theme. We learn that the essay he wrote was this book.
My favorite part was when Ponyboy gets back from the hospital and he is making eggs and everybody is there greeting him. They mess up his eggs and get him mad.This is also where Darry starts to act more of a father figure.
