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.

Loved it

I enjoyed this ,lots of tension it did not bother me that the narrator spoke like an adult as the main characters both were smart and had endured a lot at younger ages - good story
Had a hard time stopping

Meh

It's what you expect .. the narrators inability to have different male type voices ruins it. The father sounded a lot like the love interest which made it hard for me to "escape" into the book

Unsettling

As I listened, I felt that the protagonist was putting herself into all kinds of dangerous situations. She did not use good judgement in terms of keeping herself safe and I felt that her bravado was unrealistic. The adults in the story were not present most of the time and when they were they were bumbling idiots. The lack of real consequences in various situations in the book left me rolling my eyes. The narrator was good. The author tries to portray a strong, intelligent young women and to some extent succeeded but she failed miserably at demonstrating that a strong woman does not hang in there for years and years of abuse and ridicule at the hands of someone who clearly has serious issues he needs to deal with. The trauma the young man experienced could not possibly be healed by a teenage girl of 18. Instead a strong young woman should be encouraged to run like hell from that kind of shit. Role models are crucial for young women in today’s society. This author has failed our girls.
