Waiting On Wednesday (9)


It's Wednesday again and that means it's time for another Waiting on Wednesday post. For those of you that don't know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers share what upcoming releases they are excited to read.

And now, for this week's pick:

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney


Summary (from The Contemps' website):
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.

As you may have guessed, The Mockingbirds is another one of the books for the Contemps Challenge. The story looks really good and, especially with all the controversy of the past week over books with a similar theme, the story deserves to be out there and read. It might be a subject people are uncomfortable with but it won't go away just because of that.

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney will be published by Little, Brown November 2, 2010.
