Book Review and Giveaway: Tease by Amanda Maciel

"Tease" by Amanda Maciel is a must read. I thought Maciel did a wonderful job with this book. I think this is a book that every teenager should read. I think anyone that has been bullied or has been the bully will completely relate to this book. "Tease" is an eye opener. I have never thought about how the bully may feel when they have to deal with the consequences of their actions. In all honesty it can change your entire life. This is what Sara had to learn.

Sara was a bully to Emma. I don't agree with the choices that Emma made because cheating with someone's boyfriend still makes you a cheater even if you aren't the one cheating on someone. Emma knew that Dylan was taken and she went after him anyway. I don't agree with how Sara responded anyway, especially since she let her emotions and the peer pressure from her best friend drive her actions. I think Sara could have made much better decisions but she chose not too. Sara chose the actions of what she did just like Emma chose to do what she did. I don't it is Sara's fault that Emma is dead because suicide is a choice that Emma made. I do believe that Sara helped the process along with all the mean things she said and did to Emma. I think both sides are guilty of many things.

To actually read and think about the trial one might go through having too deal with going to court and the fact that everyone blames you for the death of another person. I think that would make life very hard. Imagine one day things being normal and than the next minute everything is completely different.

"Tease" is such an eye opener. I really think everyone should get a chance to read it because I feel like there is so much to learn from "Tease." Maciel did a wonderful job with her debut novel. There are so many things that I want to say but I am not completely sure how to put them all into words. I really felt myself feel sorry for Sara by the end of the boook. I feel like she was able to learn a lot through her entire process. That is the important part.
