S.E. Hinton wrote "The Outsiders" in 1967 when she was still in high school. It was her first novel and sold millions of copies. Hinton was the author of other popular "teen" novels such as "Tex" and "Rumble Fish," both of which were made into movies starring Matt Dillon. "Rumble Fish" was also directed by Coppola the same year. "The Outsiders" spawned a TV series.
