I found this book surprisingly violent and graphic in places. And I thought the themes of being bullied and singled out are as timeless and relevant today as ever. However, at the same time, I found the premise of a battle of wills over selling chocolate for their school, a bit outdated. I'd hoped that The Chocolate War would capture me as much as The Outsiders did, but it just didn't measure up quite so high. But it's a worthy read.
