From the Publisher:
?A powerful story. . . . Travis is Everyteen: part insecure hell-raiser, part closet intellectual, prone to both sneers and tears. Hinton continues to grow more reflective in her books, but her great understanding, not of what teenagers are but of what they can hope to be, is undiminished.??Kirkus Reviews

Author Bio
S. E. Hinton
Susan Eloise Hinton's first novel was accepted for publication on the same day she graduated from high school. THE OUTSIDERS (1967) is often considered a landmark in young adult literature for its realistic, rather than formulaic, depiction of teenagers. It was the decision of the marketing department of the publishing company to list the author as S. E. Hinton instead of using her full name--they thought the public might have trouble believing that a young woman wrote such a strong novel featuring male protagonists and violence. Using the money she earned from THE OUTSIDERS, Hinton attended the University of Tulsa and earned a degree in education. After writing three more novels, Hinton become involved in translating her books into screenplays. She then returned to writing books in 1988 with TAMING THE STAR RUNNER.
