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.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Bully really is intense, emotional listen or read. Now, this is the second book that I’ve listened to by Douglas. And I absolutely loved it. I was having a hard time getting into one, that I was listening to previous. So I jumped on this one. Just starting out, it grabbed me and held my attention. I couldn’t stop listening! it was that good. I don’t think I’ve listened to this narrator before. But she did a good job. Tate and Jared have had this history together. They were BFF’s and spent every day together. But something happened when he came back from a trip. And essentially he was never the same. The whole time I’m listening to this, I’m like Jared is such a douche this poor girl. Why?! is he bullying her? what made him this way? You don’t find out till much later. But totally worth the wait. I’m all about angsty teenagers and all of it. Just these two together, you could feel the tension, the desire and you're like just do it already lol Douglas really has a way of building that tension that has you on edge the whole time. I’m so glad I jumped to this and already started Rival. I really can’t get enough.
