She turned to writing

While she was in high school, Susan Eloise's father was diagnosed with cancer. She didn't know how to deal with it, so she turned to writing. 

She wanted to write something different, something she had not read before. She completed that first book by the time she was 16. She had taken inspiration from real life and events that had happened to her, but her publisher told her no one would believe her because she was "just" a girl. So, she changed her name a little. 

When the book was finally published, it became an instant classic, becoming one of the most renowned novels of the time, selling more than 4 million copies in the U.S.

The book has now been taught in many schools and banned in others because of its rebellious nature. The shy, somewhat insecure girl, eventually became one of the most popular and best known writers of young adult fiction. Her novels changed the way people look at young adult literature.

 Her first book's title? It was called "The Outsiders," a book about a group of kids growing up and coming of age, experiencing the harsh realities of life and death ("Nothing gold can stay") and the different worlds the groups of kids live in.

The author, Susan Eloise Hinton, is better known as S.E. Hinton, born July 22, 1948.
