"Waiting On" Wednesday 19

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
Release Date: November 2, 2010
Publisher: Little, Brown Books
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."
WHY I WANT THIS BOOK:
• Love, love the plot! Sounds intriguing and original!
• Cover is amazing. I like the color scheme.
