Set in Afghanistan, Torn is a terrific read. It contains enough detail to be informative, carries the mood of the soldier, the terror of attack in life-threatening situations, and the emotion of a woman trying to make moral decisions in impossible situations created by war and torn allegiances. Massey's prose is at times poetic, at other times evocative. In short, this is one of the best war stories I've read for older teens. My take on its suitability is Year 10 - 12.
