Top 10 secret society books

C. J. Daugherty is the author of Night School, which is set in an English boarding school and centers on an elite, secret society spinning out of control, threatening to take everyone down with it.

For the Guardian, Daugherty named her top ten secret society books, including:
The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

This disturbing and extraordinary book follows the experiences of Alex, a teenager at the elite Themis Academy. The private school is known for its modern approach to education in which teachers and students are essentially equals. But when Alex is date-raped by another student, nobody will help her. The incident is brushed under the carpet. Desperate, she turns to The Mockingbirds, a secret society of students who act as a sort of vigilante group, providing the discipline and justice the adults at the school fail to offer. Shocking and eye-opening, this book is hard to put down.
Read about another book on the list.
