Review: Bully by Penelope Douglas

Fall Away series


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.


If counting a first half of the book, I wanted to give 3 if not 2 stars, I'm happy to let you know It got less frustrating :)

So, the other day, I saw the cover and the tittle and thought - Whoa! I need to read this!
But then I've read some reviews and wasn't so sure anymore.. There was a lot of people who questioned the reasons behind hero's bullying and my excitement sank! Oh, hell - I thought, what a shame :/ And I left it at that.
Read few more books, but my thoughts kept side stepping me and coming 
right back here.. The I said "screw it" and read it anyway! :)

You know what? It was perfect timing!!!

This book is true teen anxiety and emotional rollercoaster, but I loved it! I loved the thrill and the unknown!

So if you have doubts about this book - DON'T. It was almost perfect to me.
I still had a hard time getting over his reasoning for ... well, let's say a lot of thing, but then I remembered that they're just teens and obviously not everyone can be as smart and I was, when I was a teenager! :D LMAO

So anyway, don't over-think it and just enjoy the ride!
