The Battle of Jericho by Sharon M. Draper

Sixteen-year-old Jericho is psyched when he and his cousin and best friend, Josh, are invited to pledge for the Warriors of Distinction, the oldest and most exclusive club in school. Just being a pledge wins him the attention of Arielle, one of the hottest girls in his class, whom he's been too shy even to talk to before now.
But as the secret initiation rites grow increasingly humiliating and force Jericho to make painful choices, he starts to question whether membership in the Warriors of Distinction is worth it. How far will he have to go to wear the cool black silk Warriors jacket? How high a price will he have to pay to belong? The answers are devastating beyond Jericho's imagination.

    I thank it's an outstanding book for teens of all ages. I read it when I was in 7th grade an now I'm a freshman, but I have to say it improves your reading an comprehension skill a lot.
  • Amazing Book!!

    By 🙊🙎
    Had to read for summer reading project and I thought it would be horrible at first. I started reading it last night and didn't want to put it down, I finished it a few minutes ago. It's truly an amazing book. It has a very very sad ending that almost had me crying over his death, but I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, it really is a great book!

    I cried so hard at the end, and I don't cry that much. It was so sad I didn't no what to do. It is literally the best book I have ever had and read. Oh and for some people who are wondering this book is ten AR points.

    This book is probably one of my favorites. I couldn't put it down. The ending was really sad though, but I would recommend it to anyone.
  • The Battle of Jericho

    By Wudan English Teacher
    I read this novel in an alternative school setting with students ranging from grade 6 to 12 over the course of two weeks. The students, who are very bright and not easily satisfied, were very much enthralled by the story and characters, which revolve around the concept of being hazed in order to gain acceptance into an elite group or organization. As an English teacher, I found the plot slow at times. I also felt Ms. Draper overused the use of adjectives (especially those ending with -ly) in conveying imagery and character development. Both male and female students had characters with whom they could relate and/or mentally joust. I'm pleased the sequel focuses on one of the female characters from this work. Ultimately, anything that captivates MY students is a big winner with me.
  • Greatly sad

    By Steph2015
    Incredible book but such a sad ending I would have preferred for Josh to end up in a wheel chair :/
