"British medic Ellie is only 19 when she arrives in Afghanistan for her first tour of duty. Before she can even get her bearings, her squad is assigned to a group of American Navy SEALS and sent into Taliban territory to find a hidden arms cache. Loaded with intense atmosphere and explosive active, their mission (as well as the attraction between Ellie and young SEAL Ben) unfolds at a furious pace, exposing several mysteries -- many of which relate to the Young Martyrs, an army of orphaned children. Authentic and deeply descriptive, Torn offers a gripping, suspenseful glimpse of modern politics and warfare." Teen Scene November 2014 newsletter
