Torn, by Cat Clarke (Re-read)

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And today I am going to be reviewing a book I read last year, and that is Torn, by Cat Clarke.
I've got to admit, I didn't think that I'd finish this book as quickly as I did, but that's irrelevant.
So, let's get on with the review!

Torn, by Cat Clarke (Re-read)
Title: Torn
Author: Cat Clarke
Genre: YA (Young Adult), thriller and mystery
Release date: December 22nd, 2011
Pages: 372 
Blurb: "Four girls. One dead body. A whole lot of guilt.

Alice King isn’t expecting the holiday of a lifetime when she sets off with her classmates on a trip to the Scottish wilderness, but she’s not exactly prepared for an experience beyond her darkest nightmares…
Alice and her best friend Cass are stuck in a cabin with Polly, the social outcast, and Rae, the moody emo-girl. Then there’s Tara – queen of mean. Powerful, beautiful and cruel, she likes nothing better than putting people down.
Cass decides it’s time to teach Tara a lesson she’ll never forget. And so begins a series of events that will change the lives of these girls forever...
A compelling story of guilty secrets, troubled friendship and burgeoning love.

My Thoughts
I'd seriously forgotten just how good this book was. It's got all the things that you need in a young adult. Relatable characters, a clear plot, and a whole lot that comes with it. 
The story starts when four completely different girls end up sharing a cabin, but a trick goes horribly wrong. 
The plotline was... decent, but it was the characters that really made the story for you. 
The characters are just relatable, and you are able to connect with them so easily.
The writing was fairly simple, and easy to follow, and that is one of the things that I like about the story as a whole. 

So, that was my thoughts (not really a review), on Torn, by Cat Clarke. I am currently reading Bomb, by Sarah Mussi, and I am hoping to finish it by this time next week.
So, that is all I have for you guys, bye!
