Product Description

Review

"Robert Cormier has written a brilliant sequel, more finely crafted, denser in plotting, and more subtle in character nuance than at his debut ten years ago as a YA author. "Beyond the Chocolate War" is a Newberry Medal candidate-if not the hands-down winner."-"Children's Book Review Service"
"No one has read Robert Cormier's young adult novel "The Chocolate War" can forget the anguish of that fight under the spotlights at the Trinity School...Mr. Cormier is almost unique in his powerful integration of the personal, politcal, and moral. "Beyond the Chocolate War" is very much a sequel."-"The New York Times Book Review"
"Readers will be riveted to this suspensful novel...After reading this sequel readers will probably demand to read its predecessor if they haven't already read it. The best of Cormier's highly acclaimed novels..."-"Voice of Youth Advocates"

From the Inside Flap

The school year is almost at an end, and the chocolate sale is past history. But no one at Trinity School can forget The Chocolate War.
Devious Archie Costello, commander of the secret school organizationcalled the Virgils, stall has some torturous assignments to hand out before he graduates. In spite of this pleasure, Archie is troubled by his right-hand man, Obie, who has started to move away from the Virgils. Luckily Archie knows his stooges will fix that. But won't Archie be shocked when he discovers the surprise Obie has waiting for him?
And there are surprises waiting for others. The time for revenge has come to those boys who secretly suffered the trials of Trinity. The fuse is set for the final explosion. Who will survive? --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

By A Customer on 22 July 2003
Format: Hardcover
Beyond the Chocolate War is the sequel to "The Chocolate War" by Robert Cormier. It again follows Jerry Renault and his struggles to remain unnoticed at Trinity school for boys. Archie, now in his last year, is still head of the Vigils but now with new enemies. Several new characters have become under the reader's scrutiny in a way only Robert Cormier knows how; it's as if the reader is inside the characters' head, becoming his psychiatrist. Although many things have changed at Trinity school since the chocolate sale, the themes from the original book have been carried over. These themes are not as strong (expectedly), but the overall effect is the same.
This novel lives up to the expectations of the first, and is a chilling conclusion to the series. Highly recommended.
