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.
