The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
By teen libMarch 22, 2013
“Three things I know this second: I have morning breath, I’m naked, and I’m waking up next to a boy I don’t know.” (page 1) Alex has been date-raped during her first week of junior year at Themis Academy. And of course, at Themis Academy, “The teachers, the headmistress, all the freaking administration, they never think we’re up to anything. They think we never skirt the rules here at perfect, progressive, prestigious Themis Academy.” So now Alex has two choices. She can choose to stay silent and hope that someone will help her. Or she can enlist the aid of the Mockingbirds, a secret society of students dedicated to righting wrongs committed by members of the student body.
