Where would the boys be in ten years from the book,not in real life?

I think this is a personal question that asks you to use your imagination based on what you know of the characters.
Obviously some of the boys do not survive: Johnny, Dally, Bob. It seems unlikely that any of the greasers will find ways out of their situations, although Ponyboy has the best chance of going on and gaining some education to make his future life better. Darry will continue to support the family as he has done after the death of his parents; the Socs will go on to their "rich" dreams and find out how to get away from the environment where all of this "drama" happened.
