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 Patrick is date-raped during her junior year, she has two options: Stay silent and hope someone helps, or enlist the aid of the Mockingbirds-a secret society of students dedicated to righting the wrongs of the student body.
In this account of a teenage girl’s search for her voice and the courage to use it, debut author Daisy Whitney reminds readers that standing up for someone, especially yourself, is worth the fight.
Why am I looking forward to this? One simple reason. BOARDING SCHOOL! I think I have an obsession with them, seriously. I. Need. To. Read. This. I know, I know – I’m cheating since it was released in January. But it’s only been out for a month and it’s on my wishlist so why shouldn’t it be featured in this week’s Wow? 🙂
