    ITEM#: 3164209

    Robert Cormier (1925-2000) changed the face of young adult literature over the course of his illustrious career. His many books includeThe Chocolate War, I Am the Cheese, Fade, Tenderness,After the First Death, Heroes, Frenchtown Summer, and The Rag and Bone Shop. In 1991 he received the Margaret A. Edwards Award, honoring his lifetime contribution to writing for teens.
    One of the most controversial YA novels of all time, The Chocolate Waris a modern masterpiece that speaks to fans of S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders and John Knowles’sA 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
