Tease - Amanda Maciel 2.5/5

OVERALL 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 very often. I feel like this book could have done so much more. It could have gone deeper into the lives of bullies and what has happened to them to make them feel the need to bully others. I honestly feel like nothing was accomplished during this book. There was no character growth and no resolution in my eyes.

CHARACTERS: The main character in this book made me so angry. The whole time, she didn't think she was doing anything wrong and she blamed the girl they were bullying for everything. Emma (the girl being bullied) did some things she shouldn't have, but Sara (the main character) and her friend Brielle just took things way too far. I really didn't like Brielle's character. She was so manipulative.

COVER: I fell in love with this cover. It's so shiny and beautiful. It definitely grabbed my attention and made me want to read the book.

**I received an ARC of this book from Amazon Vine for my honest review.
