Reissued now in hardcover with a new introduction by the author, Cormier's
chilling look at the insidious world of gang intimidation and the abuse of
power in a boys' boarding school is no less relevant today than it was in
1974.
"Vicious and violent mob cruelty in a boys' prep school is not a new theme but

uncompromising ending ..."-- "Kirkus," starred review
"Masterfully structured and rich in theme; the action is well crafted, well
timed, suspenseful."-- "The New York Times Book Review
"
