Torched - April Henry

April Henry
4 1/2 out of 5 Stars!

Ellie's parents are involved in a giant drug bust. Charges are being pushed on them, that could lock them away for a very long time. However Ellie is given a chance to keep her parents out of jail and to clean their record.

The FBI wants Ellie to join the radical environmental group Mother Earth Defenders. A group where is aways tested and breaking the law—all undercover for the FBI. But when a love interest pops up in the group and friendships start to form Elli needs to decide if what she is doing is really worth it.

When I first sent this book—I was not sure if I would enjoy the content. People breaking the law to save the earth—not on my favorite thing to read about list. Even in real life it really gets under my skin. There are better ways to carry out environmentally friendly tasks.

But once I started the book I was totally sucked in and could not put it down. I even would mail April updating her on my progress and telling her how much I enjoyed the book! April is an amazing writer, some parts were a bit too slow for me—but everything came together at a good timing and I finished the book in no time.

Buy on Amazon!
