The Chocolate War is considered young adult fiction (YA) and was published in 1974, and probably written a year or two before it was published, maybe in 1972, or 1973. The book is very controversial because of the setting, in a catholic High School that centers on the bullies of the school and the way they run the school. There is also harsh language in the book adding to its controversial nature.

I believe that the book was later made into a movie and that there is a sequel to the novel entitled, Beyond the Chocolate War. This sequel, one can reason, deals with after what happens to the gang or further follows their exploits as they control the school and possibly lose their control on everyone and everything at the school.
