A decent story, but it felt rushed at times. I would have liked to see the characters explored a bit deeper; a lot of the side-characters seemed kind of flat. ( )

Although a few of the characters were a bit flat and contrived this is a very impressive first novel. It handles a delicate subject very tactfully and with great grace. It sends a very positive message for those readers that are in the same predicament as Alex. ( )

Authentic and illuminating, this strong debut explores vital teen topics of sex and violence; crime and punishment; ineffectual authority; and the immeasurable, healing influence of friendship and love.

The novel is never preachy, nor does it stray into feminist manifesto, but it does lend a voice to those who often have difficulty finding their own.

Book description
From Goodreads:

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
Haiku summary
