9780152001902: Drummers of Jericho

Pazit Trujillo begins her freshman year at Jericho High School and quickly realizes that people in this small suburban town aren’t used to Jewish girls with strange names. Despite the whispers and stares, Pazit wants to fit in and is determined to join the school’s marching band. But when she learns they will be playing hymns and marching in the formation of a cross, she objects. Only one person in the town, drummer Billy Harper, stands up for her, and in the end both Billy and Pazit learn something about friendship and the importance of exercising one’s rights.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-10?To escape constant conflicts with her mother, Pazit Trujillo, 14, leaves their home in Denver to live with her father and stepfamily in the small, predominantly Christian town of Jericho. Being the only Jewish person at Jericho High School proves to be extremely difficult for Pazit. After joining the prize-winning marching band, ironically called the Demons, she discovers that its routines revolve around Christian themes, with hymns for music and a cross as its final formation. Following her convictions, she refuses to march in the cross, choosing instead to play her flute from the sidelines. When her father calls the ACLU, Jericho, like its Biblical namesake, becomes a battlefield?a legal battlefield?and Pazit becomes the target of malicious acts and anti-Semetic slurs. Her only friend is 15-year-old drummer Billy Harper, who finally summons the courage to stand with Pazit against his own community, and who himself becomes a target of the hostilities. Meyer's characterization of most of Jericho's Christians, while unflattering, portrays one town's narrow-minded thinking and intolerance of individual differences. Like Avi's Nothing But the Truth (Orchard, 1991), Drummers of Jericho demonstrates how easily an incident can escalate when it extends beyond school walls. With its timely, thoughtful treatment of complex issues, Meyer's story is certain to spark animated discussions.?Kelly Diller, Humboldt High School, IA
