Emma Putnam is dead, and it's all Sara Wharton's fault. At least, that's what everyone seems to think. Sara, along with her best friend and three other classmates, has been criminally charged for the bullying and harassment that led to Emma's shocking suicide. Now Sara is the one who's ostracized, already guilty according to her peers, the community, and the media. During the summer before her senior year, in between meetings with lawyers and a court-recommended therapist, Sara is forced to reflect on the events that brought her to this moment—and ultimately consider her role in an undeniable tragedy. And she'll have to find a way to move forward, even when it feels like her own life is over.In this powerful debut novel inspired by real-life events, Amanda Maciel weaves a narrative of high school life as complex and heartbreaking as it is familiar: a story of everyday jealousies and resentments, misunderstandings and desires. Tease is a thought-provoking must-read that will haunt readers long after the last page.

2.5/5OVERALL IMPRESSION: Going into this book, I had no idea what it was about, other than there were bullies involved somehow. I feel bad for saying this, but I was just unimpressed with this book. There are so many stories about kids being bullied, but we don't really see the side of the bully ver...

I was really interested in reading this book. (though it sounded quite a lot like I swear by Lane Davis)Luckily it turned out to be different. The books switches back to now and then (when everything happened). Emma committed suicide after months of bullying. I have to say, maybe it is harsh, and ma...
