Description of this Book

A hard-hitting coming-of-age story by S. E. Hinton, author of THE OUTSIDERS, reissued in The Originals series of classic teenage fiction. Byron and Mark are like brothers but when they get to 16 things begin to change. Byron is into girls but Mark is only interested in making money, yet they still enjoy hustling pool games in Charlie's Bar. When Charlie is killed defending them in a brawl Byron and Mark begin to drift apart. Byron is in love with Cathy and has to make the decision of his life when her drug-addicted brother goes missing. The Originals are the pioneers of fiction for young adults. From political awakening, war and unrequited love to addiction, teenage pregnancy and nuclear holocaust, The Originals confront big issues and articulate difficult truths.
