Bully (Fall Away #1) by Penelope Douglas

Buy on Amazon: Link

Bully is the first book in the Fall Away Series by Penelope Douglas. The main characters are childhood friends who had a mysterious falling out the summer before freshman year of high school and Jared spends the next two years bullying Tate for some unknown reason. Tate studies abroad in France her junior year of high school and returns to her hometown for senior year a stronger person ready to stand up to the bullying. Through a bunch of interesting events the reader learns the driving force behind the bullying. 

I honestly wasn’t ecstatic about picking up this book because I assumed it was going to be really juvenile but it was very well written and mature. The story was also extremely intriguing and I had trouble putting it down. I can’t wait to read the rest of the 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. 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.
