“Themis Academy is a co-ed boarding school of the highest caliber. According to the administration, everything is perfect there.
According to the students, that's not quite correct. In response, The Mockingbirds, a very
organized judicial force of students is formed. Alex never dreamed that she would need their
services -- until she is date-raped. This is a very strong story that is difficult to put down, with an important message for everyone.”
— Jackie Blem, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO
"In The Mockingbirds, Daisy Whitney has written an unflinchingly honest story about the importance of taking a stand and speaking out. An emotionally powerful debut that will leave readers breathless."
-Courtney Summers, author of Cracked Up to Be
"First-time author Whitney boldly addresses date rape, vigilantism, and academic politics in an intense and timely novel... Besides showing skill in executing suspense and drama, Whitney masterfully evokes the complexity of her protagonist's emotions, particularly her intense longing to feel 'normal' again."
-Publishers Weekly (Starred review)
"[Whitney] writes with smooth assurance and a propulsive rhythm as she follows Alex through the Mockingbird's trial process and its accompanying emotional storm of confusion, shame, fear, and finally, empowerment. Authentic and illuminating, this strong debut explores vital teen topics of sex and violence; crime and punishment; ineffectual authority; and the immeasurable, healing influence of friendship and love."
"Extraordinary...Shocking and eye-opening, this book is hard to put down."
