    " Typical hazing in high school book. Not that award winning in my opinion, though I liked the main character a lot. "

    " This book is an excellent source for urban high school isstues.Two friends, Jericho and Josh are invited to join an elite club at school. The excitement wains though when the initiation games grow increasingly humiliating, forcing Jericho to make painful choices. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Barbara | 2/8/2014

    " I loved everything in this book, that took me inside the head of students facing demeaning and downright dangerous hazing activities, why they continue on, even when the adults around them sense problems and try to persuade them to tell, even when one of their member is being tortured (literally) by one of the seniors doing the hazing and another has a heart condition that could lead to his death. I really saw from the young persons POV, why Jericho and the others continued on a path that even a few more years of maturity might have changed. "
