*REVIEW* Bully By Penelope Douglas
My name is Tate. He doesn't call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all.
We're neighbors,and once, we were best friends. But then, one summer, he turned on me and has made it his mission to screw up my life at every opportunity. I've been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got more sadistic as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to hide from him. I worried about what was around every corner and behind every door.
So I left.
I spent a year studying abroad and bathed in the freedom of life without Jared. Now I'm back to finish up high school and get the hell out of here forever. I'm hoping that after a year of breathing room, he's moved on and forgotten all about me.
But even if he hasn't changed, I have. I'm not interested in avoiding him or turning the other cheek anymore. We're going to go head to head, because neither of us wants to back down.
5 PLUS STARS!!!
So im currently in utter awe of this book called Bully.Utter Freaking Awe.It was amazingly great,so great I just finished it and want to read it again!This is the story of Tate who used to be friends with Jared but something changed in their friendship and Jared started bullying Tate and making her life miserable.First off let me say.I in no way condone bullying and feel it is not right in anyway.HOWEVER,it totally works in this book and when you delve deeper for Jared's reasons you will fully understand why he did what he did.Does it make it right?Probably not. I'm sure he could have chosen an easier path but had he the book would have been majorly lacking the depth,darkness and sensuality of this story.There were times when reading this I wanted to say..step back Mr.Sebastian Grey..there is a new man in town..his names Jared.This story is also about forgiveness.Forgiving those that have wronged you.Tate I have to give it to her.She stood up the Jared and kept him on his toes.This was a HOT,Sizzling New Adult read.Im still blown away that this is Penelopes Debut novel.I cannot imagine how GREAT her second novel in the series is going to be!Im totally looking forward to it and this is a MUST read and WILL be going on my top 2013 list!
