When Jericho and his friends are invited to join the 50 year-old elite high school club called The Warriors of Distinction,  Jericho thinks his life canít get any better. After all he is already a phenomenal trumpet player, and the girl of his dreams, Arielle, is starting to notice him. After conducting the seemingly innocent toy drive, the initiation activities become more disturbing. Jericho begins to question if being in the club is worth the humiliation and risks. Besides worrying about himself, he is concerned about the only female pledge, Dana, who is being terrorized by a Warrior named Eddie. Will Jericho and his friends go to any lengths to become Warriors of Distinction? Read The Battle of Jericho to find out. (Prepared by: Sally Hursey, SCASL Young Adult Book Awards)
