This book trailer is a bit random in my opinion--it starts at a random spot and it doesn't really say much about the book. I'm not sure what I think of this trailer but I am very much looking forward to reading the book. I've heard great things about it and I heard it's banned in some places too, which makes me all the more eager to read it.

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney:

Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.


Have you heard of The Mockingbirds? What do you think of the trailer?


Just a quick FYI that you may be interested in:

Leslie and I received an email from Serendipity Literary Agency about a contest they have going on right now called YA Novel Discovery Contest. Neither Leslie nor I are writers but we thought this contest might be of interest for some you. The grand prize winner "will have the opportunity to submit an entire manuscript to YA literary agent Regina Brooks and receive a free, 10-week writing course, courtesy of Gotham Writers' Workshop." Sounds cool, yeah? All you have to do to enter is to send in the first 250 words of your novel. Click HERE or on the image above for more info.
