Synopsis: 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.
The amazing sounding books just keep coming - here's another to look forward to. The idea of a boarding school with a secret society to 'police' their fellow peers sounds like a must read to me. Let me know what you guys think of this one.
