Alex, a Junior at Themis Academy, is raped. Whose fault was it? Carter, the student who took advantage of her? Is it Alex’s fault because she was drunk at the time? What about the student who provided the alcohol? And finally, who cares? Clearly the faculty doesn’t. Maybe, just maybe, the Mockingbirds can help. Follow Alex as she fights to reclaim herself, her joy in music, her self-esteem and her voice. [dac]
