  • I am always intrigued by books set in boarding schools, and this one deals with the darker side of those institutions. Though multiple issues were touched upon, the one which caught, and kept my interest, revolved around sexual assault and the fallout experience by the women, who are brave enough to speak out.•Pro: The book was broken into three acts, each with a distinct focus in the story. I liked this division, which kept me very focused, and I also really liked the addition of the second P [...]


  • I'm gonna do a proper review later, but for now, let me say this was a really engrossing book with turns I never could anticipate.BUT this does deal with the aftermath of rape - maaaaajor TW for this!!!




  • Got my hands on an ARC and am extremely grumpy that I have to do things that aren't READ THIS BOOK ALL DAY. SO GOOD.


  • “Now I know there are others,” – a feminist call to arms. This is no ordinary contemporary young adult novel. Sam is a first year student at the Edwards Academy. The school has a veneer of old wealth and opportunity, but underneath there is peer pressure, hazing, and a bizarre honor code–“it’s not long but it’s weird”–which gives a cult-like feeling to the entire institution.School food is like the school itself, you expect better but you get worse; dinner is gray steaks, crust [...]


  • Every woman can relate to this book. The permeating fear. The understanding that it can happen to anyone. The subsequent rage.Superficially, "Honor Code" is a story about an alleged rape on campus. At its truth, it is a story about our society: the way sides are taken, the way events are spun by the media, the entitlement of some men to women's bodies, the slut-shaming and victim-blaming, the enablers, the privilege of the white upper class.This story was not easy to read. The content was heavy, [...]


  • I'm not usually a realistic fiction reader, but I think stories about sexual violence and its impact are important, particularly to young readers, and this one handles it deftly and thoughtfully. The characters are relatable and feel real and fleshed-out, and the author gives us a window into their experiences that pulls no punches.


  • Honor Code explores the harsh reality of victim shaming and how too often the very institutions designed to protect us are the ones to silence those who dare come forward. Tragic, gripping, and very important. *I received an ARC of Honor Code*



  • My rating is somewhere between 3 and 4 stars but I had trouble deciding on which, so I'll just say 3.5/5. The story itself was very gripping, but I thought it was lacking in a few ways. The main character, for starters, came off as a bit selfish. Despite claiming to be acting in her friend's best interest, she seems to care more about her own vendetta than about Gracie's feelings and wishes. I didn't really empathize with Sam like I did with Gracie, which made the whole story a bit less enjoyabl [...]


  • I was fortunate enough to get my hands an ARC of this book.It was difficult to read and impossible to put down. It was gripping, raw, and uncomfortable. And, though some parts of the plot you expect to see, there are other things that take you by complete surprise. Well written, and deserving of every star I gave it.


  • ***Let me start off this review by saying that it may be the most disorganized review I've ever written, and give a huge trigger warning for rape/sexual assault. I'm writing this not caring about grammar, or flowy writing, or anything else, because I walked away from this book so rage-y that I can't really put into appropriate words all the things I felt. Also my reviews usually do not contain spoilers, but this one does because it's the only way to accurately express my full range of emotions. [...]


  • School Library Journal (12/01/2017):Gr 9 Up--When Sam's family drops her off at Edwards Academy, a pricey and exclusive boarding school that could be her ticket to the Ivies, she never expects to be hazed and humiliated with all the other first years in their house by Hayden, the Head Girl, and her posse of prefects. Equally surprising is Hayden's gift: she matches Sam up for the fall mixer with fourth-year Scully Chapman, captain of the polo team. The misery of being new while trying to fit in [...]


  • Fascinating read--and as many other reviews have said, a timely topic. I'm not sure what to make of the ending. There's a very surprising, fascinating twist that makes me want to read the book from the beginning again, and see if there were hints to this realization.If I understand the ending, it makes Sam an unreliable narrator, which makes how she portrays herself at the beginning--kind of Mary Sue-esque, at least that's how I read it--very interesting and real. We all are biased narrators of [...]
