REVIEW: Torn by Annie Brewer

Torn (Torn Heart, #1)

BLURB: Skylar McKenzie is a serious artist with a plan. She'll graduate high school, travel around Europe, then leave her life in Texas and move to New York. She'll also leave her feelings for the boy she's known her whole life, behind and move on. Or so she hopes.

Jackson Cruz is ready for a future as a star quarterback once he graduates high school. It's the path he's been leading for years now. But when his cheerleader girlfriend cheats on him, and a teammate causes a lot of drama, he wonders if this is really the life he's wanted, or if there's something more. 

They thought they had it all figured out-their futures. But life doesn't always go as planned. With feelings revealed, their dreams on the line, this is a year for changes, choices, and a love that might or might not overcome all obstacles.

Told in Jackson and Skylar’s POV, this is a story about acceptance, first love, embracing your passions and finding your way, even if it’s not the way you had planned.

My Review 
This is a story of childhood friends who grew apart and then come back together. I love how strong Sky was and I really love how her art wasn't just mentioned once and then forgotten. Her art is a big part of her life and left me wanting to see her paintings. When we first saw interaction between Sky and Jackson I thought I was going to hate him, but he proved me wrong. He was a teenager still dealing with heavy stuff that lead him to be the way he is. At first I thought something would happen between Jared and Sky and I am really glad nothing did. I think it would have taken the story somewhere else. I am happy with the way things played out. I just wish Jackson would have gotten rid of Amber sooner.. That bitch really needed to be put in her place. But I think I would like to know more about her too. Like why is she the way she is, just to get a glimpse in the bad girl's head. Torn is full of teenage angst and shows all of the characters growing up throughout the story. Though they all still had moments where I wanted to shake them all, however that is part of being human, making mistakes and learning from those mistakes. 

My favorite thing is that this story isn't farfetched. Everything that happened was real. That end.. Oh that end has me wanting to know what is up a certain person's sleeve! Not a cliffhanger per se but still leaves you with questions and sets up for the next book. Can't wait to see what else is in store for everyone!
