I found a book at my library recently called "The Mockingbirds", and wanted to recommend it to anyone and everyone on here. So as not to give away anything, rather than making my own summary, this is the summary inside the book. When Alex, a junior at an elite preparatory school, realizes that she may have been the victim of date rape, she confides in her roommates and sister who convince her to seek help from a secret society, the Mockingbirds.
There is a great message throughout the book that a lack of a no does not mean yes, that only a firm, loud, obvious yes means yes, and...well, it's really, really great.

Sounds interesting, I'll see if I can check it out! I once read a book for school called Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood. I absolutely loved it. She touches on several subjects, including her own experience with not-so-consenting sex because of drunkeness, among plenty of other things. It's a wonderful read and personal story.
