"The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton

I decided to redesign the book cover for "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton. The novel was published in 1967 and made into a film in 1983. Here a short plot summary:

"According to Ponyboy, there are two kinds of people in the world: greasers and socs. A soc (short for "social") has money, can get away with just about anything, and has an attitude longer than a limousine. A greaser, on the other hand, always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back. Ponyboy is a greaser, and he's always been proud of it, even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers--until one terrible night when his friend Johnny kills a soc. The murder gets under Ponyboy's skin, causing his bifurcated world to crumble and teaching him that pain feels the same whether a soc or a greaser."

It has been a while since I read the story, so I need to give it a new perusal. I found a few book covers which I attached here. Excited to get started on this!
