I was immediately drawn in by this secretive school to begin with. The entire story seemed so real to me, like Alex was a friend of mine and she was telling me all of this or I had found her journal and was pouring over it. I read this is one day, I was so addicted to this book.
I've always like books like this. A small group of people overlooking the power a larger group may have or think they have and they change things for the better because that is the right thing to do.
This novel left me screaming at Carter's rumors and his awful phone call. If left me crying tears of joy when the verdict was guilty (for some reason I was so sure the author was going to throw a curve ball and let him off), and in general feeling like justice had been served.

It was interesting how this prestigious school has an underground justice system, run by the students for the students. A very quick read.

Excellent book about the power of students to make change. Alex, a junior at boarding school, is date-raped but obtains justice through a secret student society: the Mockingbirds. The Mockingbirds themselves are well thought-out with detailed rules and procedures. Alex, as a character, isn't overly self-interested, slutty, or boring. In fact, she's incredibly realistic. The ending, though, was disappointingly predictable. There was no dramatic turn to add pizzazz. Still, the themes of this book make it an important read. Overall, Daisy Whitney has crafted an inspiring tale showing that no matter how small we seem to be, we can always make a difference.
