From debut author Amanda Maciel comes a provocative and unforgettable novel, inspired by real-life incidents, about a teenage girl who faces criminal charges for bullying after a classmate commits suicide.

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. In 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 own 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.

With its powerful narrative, unconventional point of view, and strong antibullying theme, this coming-of-age story offers smart, insightful, and nuanced views on high school society, toxic friendships, and family relationships.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Horrifying. Satisfying. Remarkable in so many ways. Tease is a brave debut.”

    Ellen Hopkins, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Despite Sarah being an unreliable (and oftentimes downright unlikable) narrator, Maciel’s great fiction debut gives readers an honest look at the serious consequences of high school bullying. Sarah’s obvious lack of self-esteem—which she, like many teens, is completely unaware of—and her hurtful actions will leave readers vacillating between sympathy and frustration as she slowly comes to realize where she went wrong.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “First-time novelist Maciel has done an exemplary job of giving readers a multidimensional portrait of a bully that is psychologically acute and emotionally resonant…Realistic and suffused with truth.”

    Booklist

  • “An emotional, deftly paced, and heartbreaking first novel.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Tease masterfully shows that when it comes to bullying, nothing is black and white, no side of the story is the only side of the story, and there are no winners. A compulsive read, and an absolute must-add to all bullying discussions.”

    Jennifer Brown, author of The Hate List

  • “Amanda Maciel’s timely exploration of bullying pulls no punches. Tease is a bold, hard-hitting, and memorable debut that needs to be read and talked about.”

    Courtney Summers, author of This Is Not a Test

  • Tease is a book I wish I’d written—shocking, subtle, and emotionally raw.”

    Katie Cotugno, author of How to Love

  • A BookRiot Pick of YA
