How old was SE Hinton when she wrote The Outsiders?

S.E. Hinton wrote the outsiders when she was 16 and had it published when she was 17.

nope my Language Arts teacher told me that she wrote it when she was 16. i might have been pubished at 18 or 17, but she defitnatley wrote it when she was 16.



It even says in the back of the book that S.E. Hinton wrote it when she was sixteen years old, though the back of the movie case says she wrote it when she was fifteen, someone always finds a flaw.

Um...actually she began to write it at the age of fifteen to be more specific and she did the majority of the work at the age of sixteen. By that way, thank you for the AWESOME answer because I needed that too.

Where did SE hinton get the idea of the outesiders?

S.E. Hinton grew up in a city that harbored a plethora of racial tensions. Being in Tulsa allowed her to witness a violent 'rumble', a gang fight, after which she went home and immediately began to write out her frustrations.

Not only did witnessing this rumble influence The Outsiders, but her father's death, as well. At the young age of 16, Hinton lost her father to cancer, and in most, if not all, of her novels since then have somehow or other dealt with the loss of loved ones and how to cope. For example; in The Outsiders, Pony, Soda, and Darry's parents were killed in a car accident, and since then have been forced to fight to live with one another, as opposed to living in foster homes.

Though there is much more to be said about what influenced Hinton's novel, these are the most apparent.
