Find all of my reviews at 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 review The synopsis of Tease is as follows Sarah and a couple of her peers find themselves pending criminal charges after another classmate Emma commits suicide The reason THEY ARE HORRIBLE PEOPLE Seriously They re awful Like most high school bullies Sarah s hatred for Emma stems from simple jealousy Sarah starts rumors about Emma being a whore because Sarah s boyfriend opted to date pretty nice sweet Emma rather than her bitch ass Sarah and her friends do shit to Emma s house They play mean girl pranks on her at school They accost her at parties They seek her out in order to belittle her And they have zero remorse while doing it At no time does Emma ever retaliate As a reader I wished there would be one moment of self preservation for Emma where she just came back at these assholes and unleash the fury But since the outcome of the situation was given to me at the onset of the story I was well aware that was not going to be the caseSarah assumes Emma s lifestyle is something like this When in all actuality it s probably something a lot like this And never bothers to give her a chance or find out the truth Tease was a powerful debut and one that I would encourage teenaged girls to read I look forward to what Amanda Maciel delivers next

Tease AUTHOR Amanda Maciel Free read Ó 104 Amanda Maciel Á 4 Free read Ike her own life is overIn 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 pag. 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 hospitalI still remember it to this day I also remember that sense of power I had over someone else even then even though I was 6 years oldFast forward to junior school and I remember spending lunch hiding in the bathroom I remember being low on the totem pole of social popularity because I was super pale and clever and didn t have a cellphone like everyone else I remember that sense of relief when someone else lower than me on the aforementioned poll was picked on I remember joining in to deflect attention of myself Fast forward to high school and I remember counting down the days until I was out of there I had some kind of stoic super inner strength where I just plodded through whatever was thrown at me figuratively luckily and got through itPoint is we all have our experiences with bullying whether it be as victim bystander or perpetrator and often a combination of both The characters in this book are not likeable In fact our MC is repugnant She is vicious self righteous and absolutely blinded to the conseuences of her actions There is slut shaming and bullying galore This is not a fun book to read The MC Sara will infuriate you I see a number of people DNF d this book for that very reason an unlikeable remorseless character I m not sorry Emma was a boyfriend stealing bitch right up until the day in March when she killed herselfI didn t do anything wrong but she totally ruined my life NEVERTHELESS I think this is an important book to read I think it was interesting to see the story told from the bully s perspective which is uite rare Obviously I know that even though most bullies have issues of some sort that is NEVER a justification for hurting other peopleThe depths that Sara and her best friend Brielle go to in order to shame Emma are utterly deplorable Of course he loves you But boys don t know how to deal with sluts like Emma Putnam He s used to nice girls like you Female sexuality features front and centre in this novel Emma is bullied relentlessly by Brielle and Sara for having or supposedly having sex with a number of boys and then going after Sara s boyfriend Dylan It s the age old double standard boys can have sex and be the boss boys are never the guilty party when cheating but girls are either sluts or teases and are hounded for stealing boyfriends FFS It s 2014 and sadly we still haven t moved past itAlthough I think it s so important to reframe the narrative of female sexuality to stop shaming girls I can t help but think those included to bully would find something else to focus on She was one of those girls you know who are always hanging out with guys who don t have any friends who aren t guys Because all the other girls at school new she d steal their boyfriends As much as we may dislike Sara it s important to keep in mind that she s not as another reviewer pointed out evil We see her toxic friendship with Brielle her desperation to keep everything together her tenuous grip on her social status her insecurity None of this justifies her actions but it does make them understandable as unpalatable as we may find it This is a hard book to read but I highly recommend it And I know it sounds so silly but I just wish we could all be a little nicer to each other I wish I could have gone back and told that to my high school self

Tease AUTHOR Amanda Maciel Free read Ó 104 Amanda Maciel Á 4 Free read We didn't mean to hurt anyoneEmma Putnam is dead and it's all Sara Wharton's faultAt 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 t. Ignore the ratingThis 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 and relate to But that wasn t a problem for me I thought it was one of the book s better aspectsThe story is an old one from a new perspective It s about high school bullies and cliues the mean girls and their sidekicks their boyfriends and the slut who attempts to interfere with their reign Emma Putnam is known as the school slut and this book starts where she has just committed suicide after being repeatedly targeted and harrassed by Brielle and Sara Sara is our narrator and the sidekick of the meanest girl in school Brielle The thing is she never really understood the conseuences of her actions and she never meant for Emma Putnam to die but at the same time she isn t apologetic for her own actions either and believe she was justified in attacking Emma because she was a boyfriend stealing slutThis book starts to do something really interesting by painting us a picture of a scene without judgement I never got the impression that the author was trying to impart a negative view of anyone and even characters like Brielle had deeper levels and were shown to be victims of school politics and cliuedom rather than simply evil It s true that bullies are often scared lonely and insecure in themselves and this book shows that all teenagers are but they choose to respond to it differently Sara was not evil but acting within the social structure she knew She is sensitively portrayed as a confused young woman who worries about her image and sex I think it offers a sad but realistic portrait of what runs through many teen girls minds when thinking about sexThere was a lot of potential and power lurking in the shadows of this book It will anger so many people I m sure because of Sara s unrepentant narrative and the implied message that bullies are not to blame for bullying something I struggled to accept too But where the book shines with intent I think it is also let down by dry storytelling characters it was hard to give a damn about not even because they re mean and a sometimes immature portrayal of the characters Every now and then the book would slip into language that felt like what you get when adults write the way they think teens speak Like ohmigod I need to instagram this And wow Twilight You get the ideaI will keep an eye out for by this author because I like what Maciel was trying to do but I think I ll wait for the reviews to roll in firstBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr
