From the back cover:

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 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.

Details the dangers of hazing--particularly when students aren't aware of what "hazing" means. When does it stop being a character-building challenge and cross the line into the illegal?

Though not without faults, the book is, overall, well-written and very well thought-out. A Coretta Scott King Honor Book.
