I Am The Cheese by Robert Cormier

A teenage boy reconstructs the moment he discovered a secret about his past that might prove deadly.

Cormier is best known for The Chocolate War (Laurel Leaf Books), a grimly compelling fable about the perils of conformity. I Am the Cheese (Laurel-Leaf Library) has the same air of mystery about it, but it’s a less successful work in my opinion. I read it a bunch of times as a kid, and revisiting it didn’t reveal any new layers.
