Bully: Fall Away, Book 1 | [Penelope Douglas]

Bully: Fall Away, Book 1

I've been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got worse as time wore on. I even went to Europe for a year, just to avoid him. But I'm done hiding from him now, and there's no way I'll allow him to ruin another year. He might not have changed, but I have. It's time to fight back.

Publisher's Summary

My name is Tate. He doesn't call me that, though. He'll barely refer to me at all, and he'll hardly ever 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 worse as time wore on. I even went to Europe for a year, just to avoid him. But I'm done hiding from him now, and there's no way I'll allow him to ruin another year. He might not have changed, but I have. It's time to fight back.

    "I heart this book"

    I loved this! Maybe a little unrealistic (not sure if this is the right word)or some "seriously?" moments but I didn't put it down so it definitely held my attention from start to finish.
    My heart hurt for Tate, I laughed, had heart palpitations & wanted to smack people all within 24 hours.

    I'm not good at reviews because I don't pay attention to the "writing" or the things that most people who read a lot write about in their reviews; I only know if I liked it or not & so .....

    I LOVED IT!

    Story
    "Ahhh, tortured teenagers, got to love 'em....."

    This story is the typical misunderstood, I have issues from a traumatic experience, pissed off YA teenager story but it's well written (although there is a little at the end I would have edited out) and has a happy ending (YAY). I actually enjoyed the story quite a bit. The reader is great, the writing isn't bad and I found the characters charming and engaging. I was hooked from chapter one and finished within two days. The story made me laugh out loud a couple of times and the characters act their age instead of being written as adults. You can read the synopsis to discover the story line so I won't recap, just know I found the book worth a credit, especially if your looking for something light and easy. This is a stand alone novel so you don't have to worry about finding or waiting for part two although there is another book written from Jarod's perspective (it isn't essential to this story). Have fun discovering how to regrow wings!

    "Great Story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bully the most enjoyable?

    It was a great story of a strong young girl who dealt with bullying from her peers. Unfortunately, one of those peers was a long-time friend which made it very hard for her. I had a hard time setting the audio book down when I needed to. I wanted to know what happened next!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tatum. She dealt with a lot, but she kept fighting when most would have given up.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would have to say my favorite scene was when Tate and Jared were looking for Jared's cell phone in the school lockers and they found out it was Piper who had his phone. The fact that such a horrible thing was done to her and she stood up for herself in front of the school was quite the feat for her!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book did make me laugh and cry. I felt so bad for Tate when she thought Jared sent the video message to everyone in the school. But soon enough, the author had me laughing as Tate and Jared dealt with Evan and Piper.

    "Great book , poor naration"
    What other book might you compare Bully to and why?

    It reminds me a bit of Samantha Young novels.


    Did Abby Craden do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did OK. Her inflection during narration was a bit off-putting.

    Any additional comments?

    Wow! A romance filled with intensity, angst, an emotional rollercoaster ride, and I loved it!!! Ms. Douglas had me crying, angry, frustrated, and very smitten by the end of the book.

    Story
    "Hard to love"

    I had to give up on this book after several chapters. The heroine is SO clueless, willfully ignoring what's evident to everyone else. And the relationship, no matter how "romantic" it's supposed to be, is based on abuse. I mean, this guy makes her life hell for years just to keep other guys from dating her? Why doesn't he just ask her out? Teenage angst, my foot. This is ridiculous. She doesn't even get in trouble for physically assaulting boys at school. And what kind of dad leaves a 16-year-old girl on her own for months, with a house and car--and next door to her abuser?

    "Excellent"

    I sat on this book a long time, not really looking forward to reading it. I was soooo wrong. The Narrator was excellent. It took me a while to get used to her, especially the way her voice is kind of breathy when she narrates the non-dialogue parts. But she brought these characters to life and the story was better for it.

    The story itself brought out all the whole gamut of feelings: angst, anger, sadness, joy, excitement. The book is extremely well written and I liked the authors writing style. I highly recommend and look forward to the other books in the series.

    "Love this series!"

    I am listening to this series for the second time now! I recently noticed that the third book was out so I decided to listen to one and two again to refresh my memory. Must say I forgot how much I enjoyed it the first time around !
