WARRIORS ROCK! 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.

WOW
I read this book a while ago and it has stuck with me. I think Sharon brought to our attention a hazing problem that man areas have. Her characters were all very real acting and I loved reading from their perspectives. My favorite was Dana but I think that the way the treated her and what they did was really wrong to her. I believe that Shannon is an amazing writer and she deserves all the recognition she gets.

The Battle Of Jerico is about a boy named Jerico who is invited to pledge for the fraternity called The Warriors of Distinction. But as the pledges progress things spiral out of control. Will he make it in before things get out of hand?

I read this in one sitting on the way to Cape cod and it is one of my favorite books. It was deep and shows the true face of Hazing. It was a powerful book with a strong message. It is unforgettable.

An eye opening book about school clubs and hazing lets us see the dangers that can occur. To think that you would pay any cost to get into a club is ridiculous. Jericho and his cousin learn that they should never have been willing to do absolutely anything to join the Warriors of Distinction. Nothing can be so great. Soon enough they learn the prices they pay, believe me that cost was too high.
