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!
