Torn Away

Title: Torn Away
By: Jennifer Brown

Life can change in an instant. Growing up in Elizabeth, Missouri, Jersey Cameron is used to frequent tornado warnings. When a tornado rips through her hometown, destroying her house and killing her mother and sister, Jersey is left with nothing. Before long, her stepfather sends her to live with her biological father, whom she doesn’t know. Racked with loneliness and guilt, Jersey doesn’t know how to go on with her life. When it becomes clear that her father doesn’t want her to live with him, Jersey ends up with her mother’s parents, who supposedly had disowned her mother years before. Jersey soon learns that her grandparents are not the people she expected them to be, but can she learn to trust them enough to be able to overcome all the emptiness that the tornado left behind?
