The Chocolate War

eBook
One of the most controversial YA novels of all time, The Chocolate War is a modern masterpiece that speaks to fans of S. E. Hinton's The Outsiders and John Knowles's A Separate Peace.

After suffering rejection from seven major publishers, The Chocolate War made its debut in 1974, and quickly became a bestselling--and provocative--classic for young adults. This chilling portrait of an all-boys prep school casts an unflinching eye on the pitfalls of conformity and corruption in our most elite cultural institutions.

"Masterfully structured and rich in theme; the action is well crafted, well timed, suspenseful."--The New York Times Book Review

"The characterizations of all the boys are superb."--School Library Journal, starred review

"Compellingly immediate. . . . Readers will respect the uncompromising ending."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
