Torn Away / Jennifer Brown / 276 pages

Jersey Cameron has so many regrets.  She should have danced with her sister.  She should have told her mom how much she loved her.  She should have tried to forge a relationship with her step dad.  A tornado has torn through her small Missouri town and she has lost everything.  Even as the reader empathizes with Jersey thing keep getting worse for her.  Finally, hope, love, and trust come from totally unexpected source.  This novel vividly portrays the horrific impact of natural disasters and the tenuous ties that bind.
