Honor Code

(3) YA Scholarship student Sam Barker, fifteen, is determined to succeed at prestigious Edwards Academy and go on to Harvard. Challenging academics and peer hazing make for a rough start, but at least she's friendly with her roommate. When the polo-team captain rapes Sam, the boarding school (per its "Honor Code") seems determined only to "keep this community sacred." A powerful, timely story about sexual assault, privilege, and justice.
