TBR Tuesday: The Mockingbirds

Currently languishing on Mt TBR...

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.

I picked up a copy of this at ALA (my copy's red, which I like better), and I thought it sounded excellent.  The beginning seemed to confirm that when I read an excerpt of it for Back to School Week last year.  And the friend I loaned it to further confirmed it.
And yet, this is still sitting on top of my computer desk, buried at the bottom of a pile.  I want to read it, but it just hasn't made its way to the top of the pile yet.
What do you guys think?  Anyone read this?  Should I bump it up?
What's on your tbr?

  1. I would bump it up, I liked it a lot. But, I also have a thing for boarding schools, so my opinion may be biased.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
