Torched - Andrea Lynn Colt
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
When I first started reading this, I was hesitant. The first few chapters leading up to everything were kind of lull for me. I only say that because no matter how much I want to say I’m not bias, I am. I’ve gotten out of the whole High school phase reading. Occasionally, I don’t mind - which was this case. I thought this book was going to be one of those easy light reads about a girl in high school who gets wronged. BOY was I wrong! Andrea Lynn Colt definitely spun me for a loop in this novel, and did SUCH an amazing job at that!
The main character Rose is needless to say, in everyone eyes … Perfect. Having the hottest boyfriend, and a best friend who basically owns the school, what else could you want? Nothing. Unbeknownst to Rose, she has quite a few people who dislike, maybe even hate her. She never realized her wrong doings unto people until she spent the night in jail. Rose is being framed for arson and ends up in her losing everything she holds dear to her.
Torched has so many great qualities for a read. Mystery, Romance, Humor, and yes... even angst and sadness. The synopsis doesn’t give this book enough credit. Andrea makes it incredibly easy for you to relate personally with the characters. I completely devoured this book in one sitting. I had to know how it ended. There was so many questions that needed to be answered! [And they were] I really enjoyed reading this novel and look forward to Andrea’s next works.
I would definitely recommend this book. While the characters were in high school, you can still relate to them even if you’re not. I didn’t feel like I was reliving high school either. Being the backdrop, you know where you are but there is so many other things going on that you don’t even care. Which, I loved. Oh, and just saying… #Team Paxton <3
