The Education of Hailey Kendrick by Eileen Cook

Hailey is wildly popular at her boarding school. She is the girl who seems to have everything: nice clothes, a cute boyfriend, good grades, etc., etc., etc. ...  And she's nice on top of everything else.

But one night, she rebels and nothing is the same again. She gets caught vandalizing a statue on school grounds and kissing a boy (not her boyfriend) after curfew. She refuses to tell the boy's name and the entire school is grounded until she confesses - which she won't do.

We've all grown up knowing that we should tell the truth - but what if the truth will hurt someone and maybe ruin their life in a major way? Hailey must decide, and as I read this book, I thought a lot about what I would do.

Highly recommended for middle school girls
