Torn Erica O’Rourke
Mo Fitzgerald has just lost her best friend in the whole world. And with her friend's death Mo is learning that she was not as honest as Mo thought she was. Verity, Mo’s best friend, had just returned from a trip to New Orleans for the summer and has come back changing the plans the best friends had made for their future in college. Mo is struggling to understand what has change and to figure out who is responsible for her death at the same time. Mo meets Luc, who seems to know the new Verity and who also knows what types of beings are responsible for her death. Mo’s uncle, who is somehow connected to the Mob, believes that this was supposed to be a hit on Mo, so he hires Colin to be her bodyguard. Mo doesn’t know who to believe and finds out about the magic that Verity was involved in. Trying to find the killer and solve the murder just might put Mo in greater risk but she is willing to risk it. That is after she works out her feelings for Luc and Colin.
Great teen novel. I loved the characters, especially Mo, who has a spirit of fight in her. She is a strong female character that is working to find the answers she seeks even if it means risking herself. She is a great friend to Verity even after learning that Verity was not always truthful about what she was doing in New Orleans, and she really just wants to do the right thing, even if it does not help those around her complete their plans. This is the first book in a series and I am excited to read the rest to see what happens next. I would say high school or older for this young adult book!
