Waiting On Wednesday - The Mockingbirds

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
Published by Little Brown Books on 2nd November






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.

I can't wait for this book - it sounds awesome. I love a good boarding school story and a good debut novel. Hopefully this sound tick all those boxes for me.

I read the ARC and it's really not a boarding school novel in the way I believe you mean, but it's a very good read. The rape description is a bit graphic, but it's not gratuitous.

The author was actually date raped herself, so I imagine much was based on her own experience. Definitely a book for girls to read...and become aware of the dangers that lurk! Good choice.
