Pageturners: a book club for women June 2012 meeting (north)

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

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.

    What a fantastic group of women. Stimulating conversation on a topic that should be in the forefront of our public consciousness and awareness. Some debate, some and cookies. What more does a person need on a bright Saturday afternoon?:) What I especially love is that my decision to join a book club delivered exactly what I expected. I would never have thought to read this months book choice, would never have picked it up on my own had it not been for this meeting. I'm so glad I did because it made me think in ways I hadn't for a long time. I hope I have the opportunity to pass on some of the important thoughts and points that were discussed in this meeting to others in my close community, to be a small part of increasing the dialogue necessary on date rape. Little by little, the status quo can change.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
