I couldn't finish this book quickly enough. I absolutely loved it.
She really captured the tangled emotions of a date rape victim. And the confusion of blame and guilt and doubt. It really matched by own experience. I loved the way she explored Alex's memory in fits and starts. It unfolded with the story.
Though there is something sticky about the concept of encouraging kids to go to a group of peers rather than to the authorities, the Mockingbirds are an ingenious group.
I really liked the characters and the story, even the ending. That's saying something. :)
I highly recommend this one. It's a quick read... I finished it in a night.
