A very few novels published during the late 1960's and early 1970's helped define the relatively new field of modern YA (Young Adult) fiction. Among these is The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier. Anguishing over his mother's recent death, high school student Jerry Renault refuses to take part in a school-wide chocolate sale and becomes the focus of intimidation by a secret school society, the Vigils. A first edition (based on dj information and price, $5.95), this YA classic is in Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket.
