Waiting on Wednesday (44)

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
Release 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.

At first glance, they book may seem like a paranormal mystery book but it’s not! The Mockingbirds is a novel about a girl getting raped and what happens after that. Daisy Whitney is a very nice author, boy am I excited to read her debut novel! How I wish it is November already!

  1. This novel sounds so intense. I agree – I can’t wait to see how the author handles the difficulties of the subject. Great pick!
