Honor Code

By Kiersi Burkhart

GONE GIRL meets a ripped from the headlines story of a scholarship girl allegedly raped by a privileged boy at an elite boarding school.

Sam has been accepted to the prestigious, elite Edwards Academy, a private high school where the key to success—and getting into Harvard—is to fit in. But Sam's plan to become a true Edwardian is smashed to pieces when she's allegedly raped by one of the most popular and privileged senior boys on campus. Sam brings her case to court only to find it's not so easy to prove her innocence. As the line between truth and justice blurs, Sam must find out for herself what honor really means.

  • Ripped from the headlines story
  • Explores alleged rape as it happens

About the author

Kiersi Burkhart grew up a cowgirl in Colorado and can still run a mean barrel race. At sixteen, she attended a small private college in Oregon that helped to inspire Edwards Academy. Like most women, she grew up amid stories of abuse, where victims were forced into silence. Honor Code is her response to that silence - and to the insular communities that help to protect abusers and deprive victims of their voices. Now she lives and works as a freelance writer in Casper, Wyoming. While not writing and running her own business, she finds time to advocate for social justice. Keirsi has a deep and abiding love for Pokemon, her partner, and her dog, Baby. She's also got a dragon tattoo.
