I could not really call it a resolution to the story with the exception of saying that the end of the story is really the beginning.  Pony Boy and Johnny are two friends that grow up in a poor white neighborhood.  They are a member of the gang called the Greasers.  Pony Boy is raised by his two older brothers since his parents had died in a car accident.  Johnny is his best friend and a favorite of the Greasers.  He is skittish and easily jumps because he has been beaten by his family and hurt by the rival rich kids called the Socs.

Pony Boy begins to write about the Greasers after Johnny dies from a fire while saving children.  Dallas, their friend and the local bad boy, goes crazy and sets himself up to be killed by the police.  In order to come to terms with the deaths and his experiences, Pony Boy begins to write about the Greasers as part of a homework assignment.  The resolution is the way the story begins as he sits down and starts writing the story about the Greasers.
