Author Info
Robert Cormier
Before becoming a writer for young adults, Robert Cormier worked as a journalist and wrote three novels for adults. He is well known for his young adult novels, which focus on such realistic themes as murder, sex, and terminal illness. Many of his works, such as THE CHOCOLATE WAR, feature teenage characters faced with situations where they refuse to compromise their ideals. Readers are not guaranteed a happy ending in novels by Cormier, but rather a realistic ending--the ending that he feels is dictated by the story.
"Cormier uses deft dialogue and alternating perspectives to create tense and twisted scenes between two characters...The pacing is riveting, and the chapters that cover the interrogation raise intense ethical questions about power, fairness, and truth."
"This is a riveting read, not for the faint of heart."
"[A] tense thriller....Highly discussible, the ethical questions contained are intricate and absorbing, but detract not at all from the increasing tension as the story unfolds. Chilling."
