Book Review: Bully by Penelope Douglas


Title: Bully

Yesterday lasts forever. Tomorrow comes never. Until you”

I was excited to finish this book when I started reading it but I was a bit disappointed by how the story went. The story was confusing and I didn’t really get the character of Jared. At first I thought he was just mad at Tate because she did something but then Tate can’t remember anything she did that might’ve hurt him or something. He harassed, bullied and made Tate’s life a living hell throughout high school and I thought of everything I could think of why he was so mad at her but didn’t really find out until I finished the book. The twist of the story was well written but the way how Jared acted and treated Tate was a bit confusing. Anyway, just read the book if you want to know what I’m talking about.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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. No, he’ll barely even speak to me.
But he still won’t leave me alone.
We were best friends once. Then he turned on me and made it his mission to ruin my life. 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 stay out of his way. I even went to France for a year, just to avoid him.
But I’m done hiding from him now, and there’s no way in hell I’ll allow him to ruin my senior year. He might not have changed, but I have. It’s time to fight back.
I’m not going to let him bully me anymore.
