A signed copy of THE MOCKINGBIRDS and an ARC of THE RIVALS by Daisy Whitney

Donated by: Daisy Whitney and Michelle Wolfson

Please be forewarned--I am about to be serious. THE MOCKINGBIRDS is a book that I'd like to skywrite above every major city. Don't dismiss it as a date rape book, because it's more than that. This is a book about hope. This is a book about not being defined by your past. And THE RIVALS is the perfect sequel. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

Up for bid is a finished copy of THE MOCKINGBIRDS, signed by the lovely Daisy Whitney, and an advance, pre-publication copy of THE RIVALS.

Prize details:
The winner will receive a signed paperback of THE MOCKINGBIRDS plus an ARC (advance reader's copy) of THE RIVALS, which doesn't hit the shelves until February 2012!

About THE MOCKINGBIRDS:

Some schools have honor codes.
Others have handbooks.
Themis Academy has the Mockingbirds.

Themis Academy is a quiet boarding school with an exceptional student body that the administration trusts to always behave the honorable way--the Themis Way. So when Alex is date raped during her junior year, she has two options: stay silent and hope someone helps her, or enlist the Mockingbirds--a secret society of students dedicated to righting the wrongs of their fellow peers.

In this honest, page-turning account of a teen girl's struggle to stand up for herself, debut author Daisy Whitney reminds readers that if you love something or someone--especially yourself--you fight for it.






About THE RIVALS:
When Alex Patrick was assaulted by another student last year, her elite boarding school wouldn’t do anything about it. This year Alex is head of the Mockingbirds, a secret society of students who police and protect the student body. While she desperately wants to live up to the legacy that’s been given to her, she’s now dealing with a case unlike any the Mockingbirds have seen before.

It isn’t rape. It isn’t bullying. It isn’t hate speech. A far-reaching prescription drug ring has sprung up, and students are using the drugs to cheat. But how do you try a case with no obvious victim? Especially when the facts don’t add up, and each new clue drives a wedge between Alex and the people she loves most: her friends, her boyfriend, and her fellow Mockingbirds.

As Alex unravels the layers of deceit within the school, the administration, and even the student body the Mockingbirds protect, her struggle to navigate the murky waters of vigilante justice may reveal more about herself than she ever expected.
