Review: The Mockingbirds (The Mockingbirds #1) by Daisy Whitney

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.
The book The Mockingbirds brings up an important topic which teens might want to discuss. What a great way to take back empowerment after an incident that could ruin a young life. The premise of the book is something that many students may encounter. The characters are well developed and readers become involved in their lives.
