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.

What do you guys think? Anyone read this? Should I bump it up?
What's on your tbr?
