The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

  Alexandra Patrick is a model Themis student. She doesn’t drink, she does her homework on time, and she’s an exceptional pianist. Themis prides itself on it’s academic excellence; attending students are motivated to succeed, master their extracurriculars, and adhere to the Themis way of outstanding moral citizenry. Despite this fairy tale of perfection, Alex wakes up one morning next to a strange boy—naked—and unable to remember what happened.

Worst of all, when she gets home her friends are deeply concerned something terrible might have been done to Alex. They tell her she was drunk, so drunk it’s possible those used condoms in the boy’s trash can had everything to do with Alex walking back from his dorm that morning—everything to do with Alex’s memory loss and confusion, but she may be unwilling to believe them when they say the dreaded words: date rape.
