Torn Away; Jennifer Brown

Torn AwayTorn Away by Jennifer Brown
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Living in tornado alley can't be easy, but Jersey's life has been lucky thus far... and of course, that luck has to change. In one terrifying day, life as she knows it is radically altered. While dealing with the death of her mother and sister would have been enough for one book, the author adds in her loosing even more. And that's why this is only three stars: too much, and not all of it believable. Jersey's father and step-father are two of the main problems, with her father's family close behind. What I'd hoped was that they'd become more real but no, Jersey escapes to her mother's family. Either Act One and Act Two, or Act One and Act Three, but all three? Just a little too much for me.
