Friday Finds hosted by Should Be Reading asks us to share what great books we heard about or discovered in the past week.

Today my find is Torn by Amber Lehman, which I found while browsing Shellie @ Layers Of Thought's Goodreads shelves!

It was different this time; we weren t acting on a dare. I knew our motive; we were practicing the act, hoping to impress the right boy when it came time. But then something happened in the mix of the moment, in the mix of the alcohol. It wasn t planned, but somehow our kissing experiment turned into something else. Things went further . . . and once they had, once I returned to earth from the euphoria . . . I wrestled with my feelings at that frank realization, questioning whether our said objective was entirely true.
When fourteen-year old Krista McKinley transfers from Catholic school in Ohio to California s public Crestmount High, she discovers she has a lot to learn. Luckily, she is befriended by Carrie and Brandon and things start to look up. But when a simple dare tests Krista s values, it sends her entire world spiraling into a confusing series of events that leaves her questioning her identity as well as the people around her.

Sounds like a great coming of age story full of self discovery and awareness.

Coincidentally, I posted a poem with the same title just this morning.
