The Chocolate War:Robert Cormier – Silent Rebels

The Chocolate War (Chocolate War, #1)The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Is it possible to deal with bullies without carnage? How are power structures, formal and otherwise, shaken by one person’s defiance? The turbulence of adolescence, where every event is a phenomenon, every disagreement is a war and the need to conform defines every move…is brought out well in a believable story.

An ordinary young man in a school is asked to be part of a chocolate box-selling drive to raise funds. His minor act of rebellion turns the power structure completely on its head.
