2nd Anniversary Celebration Featuring: Daisy Whitney (giveaway)




By day, Daisy Whitney is a producer, reporter and on-air host in the new media business. At night, she writes novels for teens and is the author of The Mockingbirds and The Rivals, which are in bookstores now.
Her third young adult novel, When You Were Here, will also be published by Little, Brown, and will be released in Spring 2013.
You can follow her blog on writing, reading and editing on this site where she swears her web designer only airbrushed her photos a teensy tiny bit.
When Daisy's not inventing fictional high school worlds, she covers online video, over-the-top TV, social media, mobile phones and tablets for MediaPost, Beet.TV and others.
She also writes for Cynopsis, CableFax and Emmy Magazine. Her work is regularly read and watched by executives across the television, cable, advertising and Internet businesses. She also writes opinion pieces, position papers, and other articles on behalf of media clients, and ghostwrites non-fiction book proposals.
Daisy also created and produced her news show The New Media Minute for four and a half years.
She LOVES talking about books, shoes, chocolate chip cookies and the world's most amazing dog, who happens to be named for a flower too, Violet (Daisy's dog).


 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 Patrick is date-raped during her junior year, she has two options: Stay silent and hope someone helps, or enlist the aid of the Mockingbirds-a secret society of students dedicated to righting the wrongs of the student body.

In this account of a teenage girl's search for her voice and the courage to use it, debut author Daisy Whitney reminds readers that standing up for someone, especially yourself, is worth the fight.




 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.
