I received a copy of Torn Together by Emlyn Chand from CLP Blog Tour as part of the blog tour.
Torn Together told a story of Daly, who was having a hard time—her relationship with her mother wasn’t really good, she wasn’t sure of her future as an artist, and on top of that, she just found out that her long-term boyfriend was having an affair. Her life began to change when her mother asked her to befriend with Meghann, a pregnant teen, and later, she met with Kashi, a sweet Indian guy who believe in destiny.
The story, in my opinion began to attract me as Daly and Kashi went to India to visit Kashi’s family. I love Kashi’s his family and how they react once they’ve learnt that Kashi was in a relationship with Daly. It sounded real, like something that would really happen in Indian culture (I've watched lots of Indian movies in the past). My favorite part was that scene with Kashi and Daly in Taj Mahal. I love each of supporting characters in the book. My favorite is Meghann. I like how she cope with her life. She always appear so positive in my opinion, despite the difficulties she experienced in home and school.
Torn Together is a story where I experienced a roller-coaster of emotions. There are times when I laugh and weep as I read it. I experienced joy and grief. I actually wasn’t sure of what to expect when I first read Torn Together by Emlyn Chand and I wasn’t sure that I was going to enjoy this book. Daly sounded a bit childish at the beginning. And I wasn’t really sure with Daly’s romance with Kashi, especially with that ‘destiny’ thing. But as I continue to read the story, I began to like it a bit more. Torn Together was hard to put it down. I like it so much that I didn’t realized that I’ve read it to the last page. I would definitely recommend this book.
