Publisher's Summary

At Douglass High School, the Warriors of Distinction throw the best parties, go out with the hottest girls, and breeze through their classes without even trying. When he's chosen as a pledge, Jericho vows to do whatever it takes to become a full member. But as his initiation becomes more and more harrowing, he faces some uncomfortable choices. Exactly when do the fun and games of initiation cross into the life and death realm of hazing? Award-winning author Sharon M. Draper once again displays her unmatched ability to show the dangers faced by contemporary teens.

Great Job

This version of The Battle of Jericho is pretty good! I bought this audio version so that my students could follow along as they read the book in class. They love listening to it, and they get sad when I forget to bring my iPod to school because they enjoy it so much. J.D. Jackson reads at a good pace, and his voice is very enjoyable. This was a great purchase.

Eye Opening and Tear jerking

Would you consider the audio edition of The Battle of Jericho to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Battle of Jericho?

When Dana was locked in the bathroom with Eddie

What does J. D. Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The emotions and voices. The full experience as if it was a picture less movie.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh most of the way through but at the end yes I did cried. It was very unexpected and sad.
