Torn isn’t a straight forward story of two people coming together; it’s a multi-faceted one exploring how two high school students’ budding feelings for each other effect their families, their community, their faith, and their futures.
The reader meets Vinny and Tommy during Thanksgiving of their senior year of high school and sees them evolve through graduation and their first semester of college. They are so sweet together and I couldn’t help but root for them along the way.
My heart broke at their parting and rejoiced with their reunion. The feelings and emotions are raw, and the resolution at the end is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.
