The Chocolate War" portrays the story of a freshman by the name of Jerry Renault attending Trinity High School. The school is run by a group of teenagers known as The Vigils. The antagonist, Archie Costello, is part of the group, and he is notorious for giving out assignments to other students that usually do physical or psychological harm to them. While the book could have gone with a happy ending, Cormier wrote a more realistic end to Jerry's tale. This made "The Chocolate War" more memorable for me, because I had been hoping the best for Jerry.
