Sex, fights, hockey, and struggles. Danny thought that he could handle anything, but Branton was a different animal. Hockey is life in Branton, and anyone who steals the show is not looked upon too kindly. Unfortunately for Danny, his amazing skill poses exactly that problem—he is better than every kid in town, and they will do anything that they can to prevent him from stealing the show.

The outsider is not only a book about jealousy and envy, but also it highlights the importance of friendship and family. It shows us what the human nature is capable of even for as a simple and unimportant thing as gaining a place on a class C hockey team. This is kind of dispiriting when you come to think of what humans would do for far more important thing. On a lighter note, the friendship between Danny and his old friends comes to prove that you don't have to have money and come from a decent family to have morals and values and be a better person. Even amidst all the gangs and gun shootings these boys managed to uphold some self respect. The book is a marvel in that it balances the desirable and undesirable traits of not only teenagers, but also adults.
