"Waiting On" Wednesday - The Mockingbirds

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is
Title:  The Mockingbirds
Author:  Daisy Whitney
Publication Date:  November 2nd 2010 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers 

Some schools have honor codes.
Others have handbooks.
Themis Academy has the Mockingbirds.

Themis Academy is a quiet boarding school with an exceptional student body that the administration trusts to always behave the honorable way--the Themis Way. So when Alex is date raped during her junior year, she has two options: stay silent and hope someone helps her, or enlist the Mockingbirds--a secret society of students dedicated to righting the wrongs of their fellow peers.

In this honest, page-turning account of a teen girl's struggle to stand up for herself, debut author Daisy Whitney reminds readers that if you love something or someone--especially yourself--you fight for it.

This is so different than what I've been reading lately, so it caught my eye!  I was not a boarding school girl, so that kind of life intrigues me.  I'm really looking forward to this one!

This one looks a little too intense for me. I don't care for the subject at all, but a few good reviews might change my mind.

Here is my WoW - Manga Maniac Cafe

Sounds like a good YA read. My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.
