Teaser: The Mockingbirds

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney. Little, Brown. Publication date November 2010. Reviewed from ARC from publisher.

Teaser: Alex, a high school junior, wakes up to find herself naked in the bed of a stranger. Turns out, she got drunk the night before and ... well. She's not sure what happened next. She doesn't remember. He says they had sex, twice. He says she wanted it.

Alex's friends say if you cannot remember having sex ... something is wrong. There wasn't consent. It's rape.

Alex doesn't know what to do; who to turn to. Then she finds out about The Mockingbirds. A self appointed group of students who try to ensure justice is done. Can they help her?

Sounds like a book to give parents nightmares.

Wow. I think this has potential. I'm assuming the Mockingbird connection comes in from To Kill a Mockingbird?

Definitely some potential there and I'm glad you mentioned it because I'd never heard of it before. Thanks!

I'd not heard of this book so picked it up on a lark at BEA, now that I keep seeing more and more of it I'm quite excited to read it.
