Waiting on Wednesday (16)

Title: The Mockingbirds
Author: Daisy Whitney
Release Date: November 2, 2010
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Summary: 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.

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme created by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
