His brother Sodapop, is also in the gang. Out of all of the gang members, Ponyboy reveals that he is the only Greaser the likes to watch movies and read books. Ponyboy also lives with only some of the other Greasers such as Sodapop and Darry. Their rival gang of rich kids, the Socs, are always looking for a fight. This rival is so heated that is the Socs find a lone Greaser, they will pounce on him and hurt, or even try to kill him. That is why the Geasers try as hard as they can to travel or hang out in groups, especially after what happened to Johnny, on that terrible day.
