The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier

Posted in book review tagged , , at 4:53 pm by blueblazeslib

The chocolate war was a very interesting book. It wasn’t at all what I thought it was going to be about but it ended up being one of my all time favorite movies. It’s about a young boy who attends a private school that is run by a group of high school students that call themselves the Vigils. They give different assignments to different kids every week and see if they can carry out with them.
