Waiting on Wednesday (2): The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

Release Date: November 2, 2010 by Little, Brown

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.

Um I will kneel on a port-o-potty floor and beg/worship/kiss toes/serve wine a grapes to a fat hairy caveman to get this book. And port-o-potties and kissing hairy things makes me want to puuuke.

But I mean really: A secret society? At a boarding school? Based a bit off To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee?



I'm in love.

Oh yes, this book sounds AWESOME! Want to team up and try to get it together...I'll kneel on a bar's bathroom floor! The nastiness of the two of us doing that should bring great book karma!

Rachele: YES fo sho! Two desperate YA book lovers doing revolting things should DEFINITELY increase our chances of getting this book! :)

Nomes said...

Oh, yeah. This book is on my wishlist too. First, it just sounds awesome (for all the reasons you love it for) and second, Courtney Summers raves about it - which has me sitting up and paying attention.

Cant wait!

I didn't read To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, but you're right, secret societies and a boarding school are usually cool ;)

Rachele Alpine said...

Hee, hee! Seriously...I want this book! :) The same with DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver...I want so bad!

Nomes: Ooh now that you said Courtney Summer loves it, I want it even more!

Gaby: To Kill A Mockingbird was the only book that I had to read in school that I like =P

Rachele: Woweeeee. I think you might be book twin. I was gonna make Delirium my Waiting On Wednesday book, but I couldn't find the cover. But still. Wowzers we want the exact same books haha.
