ABOUT THIS BOOK

The school year is almost at an end, and the chocolate sale is ancient history. But no one at Trinity School can forget the Chocolate War.
 
Devious Archie Costello, commander of the secret school organization called the Vigils, still has some torturous assignments to hand out before he graduates. In spite of this pleasure, Archie is troubled that his right-hand man, Obie, has started to move away from the Vigils. Luckily Archie knows his stooges will fix that. But Obie has some plans of his own.

QUOTES

"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

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

Robert Cormier has written several highly acclaimed novels for young adults and received numerous awards, including the ALA Best Book for Young Adults, ALA Notable Book of the Year, School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, and a New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year.  Mr. Cormier lives in Leonminster, Massachusetts.
