When new boy Jerry Renault refuses to take part in Trinity School's annual chocolate sale, the consequences are devastating in Robert Cormier's The Chocolate War.
Archie Costello, the leader of the Vigils - a secret society that rules the school - has been asked by the headmaster to help sell 20,000 boxes of chocolate in the annual fundraising effort. Archie, the Assigner, sees this as the perfect chance to assert his power further - but freshman Jerry Renault is not having this...
Jerry steadfastly refuses to sell chocolates and doesn't buck into the enormous mental and physical pressure he is put under - unveiling a corrupt regime which leads to tragedy in the process. An absorbing read for teenagers which will encourage them to ask questions about the world we live in.
