Robert Cormier, Ο πόλεμος τη σοκολάτας (Chocolate war, 1974) Πατάκης, 1993 Μετάφραση: Μαρία Κονδύλη



"Ο πόλεμος της σοκολάτας" μιλάει με ειλικρίνεια και ρεαλισμό για κάποια προβλήματα των εφήβων απέναντι στο κοινωνικό περιβάλλον. Έργο σκληρό, μα και αισιόδοξο. Δυνατό σαν γροθιά στο στομάχι. Κι όμως τρυφερό σαν τα εφηβικά όνειρα. (ΑΠΟ ΤΗΝ ΠΑΡΟΥΣΙΑΣΗ ΣΤΟ ΟΠΙΣΘΟΦΥΛΛΟ ΤΟΥ ΒΙΒΛΙΟΥ)

Jerry Renault ponders the question on the poster in his locker: Do I dare disturb the universe? Refusing to sell chocolates in the annual Trinity school fund-raiser may not seem like a radical thing to do. But when Jerry challenges a secret school society called The Vigils, his defiant act turns into an all-out war. Now the only question is: Who will survive? First published in 1974, Robert Cormier's groundbreaking novel, an unflinching portrait of corruption and cruelty, has become a modern classic.
