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

Review:  Shelly Rates this 4 stars!!  

This book was back andy forth for me.  At first I hated Jared, and his crew of punk friends!  They were all so mean to Tate, for absolutely no reason.  Except there was a reason, Jared wanted to self-inflect misery onto himself, by not being the girl he always wanted.  This however didn't only hurt Jared it hurt Tate as well!  

As I read thru this book I went from hating Jared, to being pissed that he was hurting himself and Tate for BS reason, to eventually liking him and being proud that he finally was honest, and true to Tate.  Tate had his love all these years, and he just was very bad at showing it.

I enjoyed this book, and Think that anyone that enjoys love mixed with and angst would love it too!!
