OLDER FICTION
Burkhart, Kiersi

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.
