Reviews

Gr 8 Up-In Sharon Draper's Coretta Scott King winner, The Battle of Jericho (S & S, 2003), November's boyfriend Josh died during a high school hazing gone wrong and she discovers that she is pregnant with Josh's baby. In this sequel (S & S, 2007), told in the alternating points of view and struggles of November and Josh's cousin, Jericho, listeners experience November's poignant story as she tries to come to terms with losing her boyfriend, discovering she is pregnant, feeling she has disappointed her mother, and battling with Josh's parents who want to adopt their grandchild in exchange for paying for November's college tuition. Jericho's story is also unsettling as he struggles with feeling guilty about Josh's death. JD Jackson smoothly transitions between characters, giving each one realistic and fully distinct vocal patterns and intonations and perfectly expressing their emotions. Scenes are so vividly brought to life that when November goes into premature labor in a car with friends, listeners will feel as though they are right there with them. The struggles of these teens will resonate with urban youth and generate excellent group discussions. While this title can stand on its own, teens will want to read/listen to the previous one as well. Highly recommended and a must-have for libraries that already circulate The Battle of Jericho.-Stephanie A. Squicciarini, Fairport Public Library, NY Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
