2014 Eric Hoffer First Horizon Award Winner! 2014 Eric Hoffer e-book fiction Winner! Cadet Jan Wishart has been falsely accused of an honor violation at West Point. She believes her accuser is also a predator, guilty of a much more serious crime. At the honor trial, Jan must defend herself and try to reveal his guilt. Yet, two hundred years of fraternal brotherhood stand in the way.
The worst is yet to come when Jan and her roommate sneak out after Taps one night. Their discovery in an unauthorized area is more likely to get them kicked out—or killed. Jan realizes the grayness of West Point is not only in its buildings and uniforms. Even honor isn’t always black and white. Relying on her wits and a few friends in the hostile environment of the U.S. Military Academy, Jan discovers the value of friendship, the genuine marks of leadership and her own inner warrior.
I got this from audiobook boom. This book was an exposition of what goes on in West Point. It shows that the gray wall extends past the uniform and the gray walls of the buildings. Even when they know that the guy is wrong they protect him. But you don't get into West Point if you don't have the right stuff and Jan proved that ingenuity, courage, common sense, and strategies would make her successful
