S.E. Hinton is the author of what some consider to be the first Young Adult novel, The Outsiders, which she wrote when she was 16 years old.
The book is a masterpiece wrapped up in a tear-jerking tale of friendship, belonging and still yet being misunderstood. It still resonates with teens and adults alike, with its consistently relevant themes of the love, loss, and pain that come with being young.
