Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.
The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney is my choice for this week. It has a cover that is quite memorable (I love the Hush little students, don't say a word....) and the synopsis is something that really sticks with you. I cannot wait to read about this intriguing tale. Too bad it will not hit the bookstores until November 2, 2010. Ahhh!! the torture.
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
