Tease


Goodreads Summary:

Emma Putnam is dead, and it's all Sara Wharton's fault.
At 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 to her peers, the community, and the media.
During the summer before her senior year, in between meetings with lawyers and a court-recommended therapist, Sara is forced to reflect on the events that brought her to this moment—and ultimately consider her role in an undeniable tragedy. And she'll have to find a way to move forward, even when it feels like her own life is over.
In 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 page.


Why I'm Waitng For It:
I feel like Tease is one of those 'big-trend" books. Sucidal books and coming-into-terms books are going big this year. Some turn out great, while others turn out a mess, I hope Tease turns out on the good side! I love the concept and crossing my fingers it delivers!

Tease is hitting shelves on April 29, 2014 from HarperCollins Publishers
