From the beginning, which is to say Charles Dickens, stories revolving around the lives of children and adolescents often shared a similar theme. Facing adversity, most often in the form of poverty and/or dead parents, children banded together to create surrogate families of great resourcefulness and loyalty. In the old days, these situations were usually temporary ?- at some point a benevolent (and rich) adult stepped in ? Oliver and "The Little Princess" were adopted, the five little Peppers and the March girls attracted the beneficence of wealthy neighbors.

Whenever Hollywood's newest young Turks talk about one another, Emilio Estevez's name invariably crops up. "Emilio just wrote and starred in his own movie," someone might confide in admiring tones. ("That Was Then, This Is Now," based on the S. E. Hinton novel). "He's re-e-e-a-a-l-ly hot ."

Hinton's "The Outsiders," a novel about alienated teenagers and class conflict, it came at a time in his career that he now likens to being an oil tycoon who'd lost everything. "If you were a wildcat in the oil business and you made a lot of money, then lost all your money, you'd go back to digging the hole," he said this summer, during a brief visit to New York.

Trace Cyrus, singer/guitarist of the emo-electro band Metro Station, has the words "Stay Gold" tattooed across the knuckles of both hands. It's from S.E. Hinton's young-adult novel "The Outsiders," a noirish and broken-hearted tale of teenage gang life canonical among tweens making their first rebellions and self-explorations through art. It's a natural tattoo for the band's 18-year-old frontman, one of many that cover his forearms and androgynously skinny chest.
