Description

The bestselling controversial novel about corruption and misuse of power in an American boys’ school.
The headmaster of Trinity College asks Archie Costello, the leader of the Vigils, a secret society that rules the school, to help with the selling of 20,000 boxes of chocolates in the annual fund-raising effort. Archie sees the chance of adding to his power – he is the Assigner, handing out to the boys tasks to be performed if they are to survive in the school.

Every year, Trinity School runs a chocolate sale. Each boy volunteers to sell a quota of boxes in a fund-raising effort that is also a display of ‘school spirit’. But this year it’s different, because new kid Jerry Renault has refused to take part. This small act of defiance starts a chain reaction exposing the corruption running throughout the school. There is only one solution: Jerry must be destroyed.

Freshman, Jerry Renault, a newcomer to the corrupt regime, refuses to sell chocolates. Enormous mental and physical pressure is put on him but he will not give in – the result is an inevitable, explosive tragedy.
