Torn, by Amber Lehman, had the potential to be a good book, with a nice enough story line and convincing enough characters, but in the 2010 edition, the lack of correct grammar just threw me off. It took a few goes to get through the book, and sometimes, it would be disorientating to read. This, for me, made it hard to take seriously; sadly, it just felt like a well written internet story, that hadn't had any proper attention paid to it.

It could have been a good teenage book, and to less dubious readers, it probably is, but I just found it hard and distracting to read. I would find myself reading over a page a handful of times just to understand what was going on. There was constant tense jumping, and a few times, it seemed like it skipped from first person to third, without actually changing.

It may just be me, but I found this book disappointing.
