The Mockingbirds

High School Fiction

G/A Whitney, Daisy. The Mockingbirds. Little Brown, 2010. 352p. 978-0-316-09053-7. 16.99.

Themis Academy administration thinks that their students are perfect. But of course they aren’t. Since the administration won’t discipline students, the students have formed their own secret committee to do it, the Mockingbirds. Even though Alex is confused about the details, she knows that she was date raped by Carter and wants the Mockingbirds to try him in their court. The book follows Alex through the process and emotion of dealing with the crime committed against her. With all of it’s references to To Kill A Mockingbird, this book would make a great companion book to students reading Harper Lee. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
