Rites of Passage Read Along: Week Two--Welcome to the Jungle

Hello, Recruits! You've made it to week two of the Read-Along! This week your assignment is to read chapters 11-21. These chapters take us deeper into the workings of the DMA. We get to meet the mysterious Jax and one of my favorite scenes to write is in this section. I'll let you guys see if you can figure out which one it is!

But, in order to get in the mood for this section, another song is in order. While Sam has experienced the beginnings of what the DMA has to "offer" to the females, now she's going to see what happens when she's pitted against her nemesis, Corporal Matthews. Along with that, problems with her family are about to hit the fan.

"Welcome to the jungle
We take it day by day
If you want it you're gonna bleed
But it's the price you pay...
You can taste the bright lights
But you won't get them for free...
I wanna hear you scream

Welcome to the jungle
It gets worse here everyday
Ya learn ta live like an animal
In the jungle where we play...
You can have anything you want
But you better not take it from me..."

This song definitely reminds me of the relationship between Sam and Matthews as the school year starts to progress and she realizes there's more at stake here than just her accomplishing the dare.

I hope you enjoy this section! Remember, if you have questions or comments, post them in the comments--I'll answer everything I can!
