    1. Ignore the rating.This book was almost impossible to rate due to the amount of thoughts both positive and negative running through my head when I put it down I say thoughts and not emotions because I sadly remained rather emotionally detached from the characters despite the strong subject matter The fact is Tease is an ambitious book that will likely piss off a lot of people because the author refuses to take sides, even when presenting us with a narrator that is increasingly difficult to like a [...]


    2. She asked for it It didn t have to happen if she didn t do this if she didn t do that We didn t kill her She did this to herself How many times have we seen these excuses being said by bullies and perpetrators, in defense of their horrible actions How many times have we read these kinds of comments by people on the internet, heavy words easily thrown under the veil of anonymity Too many times, I bet Once is already too much And every time I stumble upon such words, such implications, I feel dark [...]


    3. Spoilers, rambling and profanity honesty too view spoiler Be warned, this review probably won t make much sense but it s not like this book did either I was attracted to the cover when I saw it on Edelweiss and thought it sounded interesting I expected a coming to age story about personal growth, regret and just something heartfelt featuring characters I could sympathise with.What a joke.The day I finished reading this book, the average rating was 2.67 and I wish I had checked before reading it [...]


    4. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum Boy this little book sure sparked some strong opinions Here s the deal It s not an easy read For a YA novel, Tease deals with some really serious issues Suicide, slut shaming, bullying just about everything nasty that can possibly come out of high school And the kicker It s told from the bad guy s perspective In order to lighten the mood and to confirm I m sick in the head, I will be using the assistance of the Most Popular Girls in School to enhance this [...]


    5. You have never read a book like this one I won t lie and tell you how amazing this book is, that you ll feel as if you just have to read it in one sitting and that you will love a main character But it is a brilliant book Amanda Maciel speaks up about the things we d rather push under the mat and not think about them and she does all that from unexpected point of view That is the reason why Tease is not an easy book to read.We need books like this If you read only to escape from reality, to swo [...]


    6. See reviews at YA Midnight Reads3.5 starsI can definitely see where Tease lost it s appeal It s written from the perspective of a bully Sara She s not vaguely sorry about Emma Putnam s suicide Even though she and her friends are accountable for it according to the public We have chapters that take us back to the time when Emma Putnam was still alive, but in between we get to see Sara s current life One that is falling apart fast It s like she cannot go anywhere without getting a dirty look from [...]


    7. I remember when I was 6, and was in the swimming pool with my cousin and another girl who was on a playdate with us I dared her to go into the deep end without her armbands on, even though I knew she was a poor swimmer, but I kept taunting her until she did it My cousin and I got distracted my other things, and when we turned around, the girl was drowning The adults noticed in time, and rushed her to the hospital.I still remember it to this day I also remember that sense of power I had over some [...]



    8. Huge thank you to the publisher for letting me read an advanced copy of this I m writing this honest review to say thank youYou re going to either love this or hate this I ve seen A LOT of DNFs and 1 star ratings because people don t like the narrator She feels no remorse, she s not sorry, she s self centered I feel like that s the point of this book though The narrator, Sara, is part of a group of popular kids who bullied a girl until she killed herself Sara doesn t understand why she s to blam [...]


    9. I ve decided Amanda Maciel might be one of the most underrated authors ever After adoring this book and Lucky Girl, I m beginning to sense a trend Maciel writes incredibly unlikable protagonists, readers hate them, brilliant books get middling ratings But man, I wish that weren t the case If you ve read the blurb, you ll know that this book follows a girl who teased another girl to suicide I feel like it should be obvious why the main character is unlikable But wow, I empathized with her so much [...]


    10. I d heard great things about this book, and was really looking forward to finally reading it, but I have to say I was a little disappointed I knew that the main character was likely to be un likeable, being the bully, but I was also curious to see the story from her perspective.The problem I had with the character wasn t the fact that she s blind to the damage she s caused, mainly because everyone did it , but her constant whining and childish attitude towards EVERYTHING The idea of being sued [...]


    11. Yeah, no When a book uses the following terms and phrases, I am NOT going to waste any time on it Fat Beyotch He obviously won t be texting Emma Sluts a Lot if he s getting the good stuff from you You know they re in Language Arts togetherd you know she keeps hooking up with Jacob and Tyler, and you know she s a dirty skank Don t assume she s not creeping up on your man Slut shaming to the nth degree The debate, like, over whether I should lose my virginity to Dylan at the part or, like, after [...]



    12. Release Date April 28, 2015 Genre Young Adult FictionI find myself at a loss for words when reviewing this book because it is extremely unconventional The subject matter of bullying is the main theme of this book of course, but rather than focusing on how the victim feels and lives through the torment, we are taken into the mind of the teenage bully herself, Sara This is very clever on the authors part however, readers are going to find it very hard to relate and connect with the character simpl [...]


    13. I Loved This Book.Sara, her BFF Brielle, and three boys that they are friendly with are all in big trouble Emma Putnam committed suicide and the blame is being placed solely on them They are all being charged with bullying, harassment, stalking, and or assault Sure Sara didn t like Emma Yes she maybe said and did some mean things to her Yes it was her goal in life to get Emma to transfer out of their school But did she force the girl to kill herself Did she put the rope around the girl s neck An [...]


    14. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss 17 year old Sara didn t want Emma Putnam to kill herself, she just wanted her to stop sleeping with her boyfriend, but that s not the way the general public saw things when Emma committed suicide.Did Sara s bullying lead to Emma s death though And should Sara and her friends be held responsible This was an interesting story about bullying, but I could definitely see both sides o [...]


    15. More of a 3.5 Okay so this is the first ARC I ve ever gotten and it s been sitting on my shelf waiting to be read for 3 yearssss I never unhauled it cause it sounded interesting and I m sentimental af, which is probably the same reason why I didn t dnf it.This book was good It just didn t blow my mind I ve been in a weird reading mood all month and that might be part of it, but also the main character was a bit frustrating Basically everyone in this entire book is a shitty person I didn t like a [...]


    16. He Dylan s never going to talk to me again And that s the saddest I feel all day this is what Sara thinks when she finds out Emma committed suicide.I know it s still early, but I think Tease is going to be one of the worst books I ve read this year It s full of dangerously despicable characters I wanted to read Tease, because I think that seeing the bully s side of the story was going to be interesting I wanted to see what happened between Sara, her friends and Emma, why they did what they did a [...]


    17. I was not sure that I was going to like this book It was about bullying and sometimes I fined that all the Anti Bulling books become full of useless platitudes about doping unto other etc.This is not that book.I want to say it again.This is not THAT BOOK.Tease is written from the view point of one of the girls who did the bullying and the person she bullied commits suicide Now she is being sued by the dead girls parents.This book draws you into the world of a 16 year old girl who is trying to fi [...]


    18. This book made me get in a lot of trouble just because of the title of the book If you don t speak arabic you won t get it I m going to tell you my first incident So mom asked me what book I was reading and I told her my older brother was in the room with us and he gave me this WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU SAY look, and i swear to god I almost shit my pants I had to explain to him that it was not what he thought it meant IT WAS FRICKEN HORRIBLE OMG Back to my review, it took me seven days to finish thi [...]


    19. This book really stuck with me, as I imagine for many other people who have experienced bullying and read this book can share as well I could relate both to Emma and to Sara I personally view that every person at one time in their life or another have been both the bully and the victim I think everyone should read this book, because of the fact that it is a book much needed in this day and age, specifically for my age group This will most likely stick with me throughout the rest of my high schoo [...]


    20. There is something wrong here.I don t know what exactly but Tease has this certain ring to it that is inevitable I tried so hard to refrain myself from reading reviews positive wise and negative wise, knowing that other people s opinions matter to me and might possibly affect my reading experience This book is not actually that bad I ve read far worse and it did have a message I believe should be sent out to everyone.But being inside a mind of a bully is something of a new experience for me I ne [...]


    21. Check out of my reviews at Singing and Reading in the Rain Tease would have been a positive reading experience for me if one thing had happened Sara was a completely different character entirely While the idea is creative, Sara s entire personality ruins the air of melancholy loss and grief.What angered me the most about Sara was how nonchalant she was about Emma s suicide Tease is told in two time frames, before Emma s suicide and after it The two together worked well, but I really hated the [...]


    22. Welp, this is a timely read considering that parts of the internet are upset over that Slate article about why adults reading YA should be ashamed of themselves The author s main argument is that YA lit is simplistic, often wraps up neatly, and is not representative of real life Generally I agree with that assessment for widely popular YA though it hasn t occurred to me since I was probably 20 to assign a value judgment on what other people like to read, so way to give a good impression of liter [...]


    23. My knees are still pale after this long, long summer spent inside, talking about my feelings, talking about a girl I barely knew who didn t want to live Didn t want to live in the world that had me in it And I m still here, in this crappy world Fighting her ghost The story started when Sara, Brielle, and other guys were sued because Emma Putnam killed herself It s because of the grounds that they somehow affected her to came up with a decision like that But what really happened that made Emma gi [...]


    24. Two girls in high school bully another girl, calling her mean names and eventually driving her to commit suicide Is it sort of like murder Or was it the girl s fault This novel really tried to tell a good story, but instead, the characters were ALL unlikable The girl who was being bullied didn t come across as being a well developed character with much of a personality, making her seem very one note And the main character, our narrator who was one of the bullies, did not have a whole lot of rede [...]


    25. After a lot of thought, I ended up somewhat torn on how I d rate this book While I understand what the author was going for, I found Sara to be one of the most childish, shrill and unlikeable characters I ve come across And both her lack of growth and her lovely, shining happy ending made me very angry at the author A quote from the author s note at the back But it seems to me that there s always to the story at least two sides, if not four or seven or one hundred And I believe that everyone de [...]


    26. You re in your own world, and no one can understand what that s like unless you let them in I don t this is the right rating for this book For a long time I sat down and thought how many stars I should give this book, because I liked it and disliked it in sort of equal ways, so I settled for 3 stars.Tease is told from Sara s perspective Emma Putnam, the school slut , commited suicide due to bullying She was bullied by almost the entire school, all lead by Sara and her best friend Brielle Half th [...]


    27. This review was also featured on my blog Trigger warnings for suicide, bullying, and slut shaming.Tease definitely addresses some important issues, namely, bullying, suicide, and our society s tendency to slut shame The story follows Sara Wharton, a high school junior who s been criminally charged for harassment of a sopho at her school, Emma Putnam Sara s learning what it s like to be hated by society she s jeered at in the grocery store, ostracised by her former friends, and her life seems tot [...]


    28. When I requested this book via Netgalley I immediately knew it was going to be psychologically conflicting and very hard to review.I was right.Tease is the story of Emma, a girl that killed herself a few days shy of her birthday, and the people surrounding the cause of her suicide Sara and Brielle are your typical high school witches they re mean, they re popular and they re very pretty, therefore things come easy to them Actually, it s not like that That sBrielle whereas Sara is the puny sideki [...]
