The 45th anniversary of a landmark work of teen fiction Ponyboy can count on his brothers and his friends, but not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids who get away with everything, including beating up greasers like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect--until the night someone takes things too far. Written forty-five years ago, S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was written.
蘇珊．艾洛絲．辛登（S. E. Hinton） 出生於美國奧克拉荷馬州土沙市，她一向於喜愛閱讀，但不滿意一般為青少年所寫的書，這促使她創作出《小教父》這本書。 辛登至今仍是極具知名度的青少年文學作家，她的書改變了人們對青少年文學的看法。她曾獲得美國圖書館協會與《學校圖書館期刊》聯合頒發的「作家成就獎」，她是第一位獲得此殊榮的作家。辛登其他的著作有：”Tex”、”Taming the Star Runner”、”Big David, Little David”及”The Puppy Sister”等。 目前辛登與丈夫大衛、兒子尼克仍然居住在奧克拉馬州土沙市。
