Robert Cormier’s writing has been variously described in ways that reflect extreme contradictions and beliefs about the suitability of his writing for young people. His young adult fiction has been profusely praised by reviewers and won numerous awards. At the same time, it has been criticised and often banned for his inclusion of adolescent issues of apparently gratuitous and senseless vandalism and underage drinking, explicit physical and sexual violence, strong, uncompromising language, and dysfunctional families.
