    What a fun read! Seriously. I had fun reading this book. It has a little bit of romance, a little bit of mystery, and really sends a good message. 

    Rose was a bit snobby. She had a pretty good life; she's popular, and has a great boyfriend. One night, everything changes. She gets arrested for arson, but she's being framed. To top it off, it appears that her loving boyfriend has cheated on her. Could her life get worse? Yes. It could. Her best friend turns her back on her and her parents are less than supportive. What starts off as a perfect fairy tale life, ends up being a train wreck with several life lessons. 

    Rose learns not only who her true friends are, but sees her parents in a different light. I have to say that her parents really ticked me off. Her dad was so focused on pleasing her mom, rather than helping his daughter though a major crisis. Then, her best friend really made me mad too. If it were me, I don't know if I could have moved past that betrayal. Rose also learns that her behavior in the past was less than stellar. She wants to turn a new leaf and not treat people the way she used to. I admired that and felt that it was a good message. Showed growth in her character. In the light of all this turmoil though is Paxton. 

    Paxton was, at one time, her best friend, but has since become an enemy. They've played pranks on each other for years. Rose suspects that Paxton is the one who has set her up, but he ends up helping her find the real arsonist. I really really loved Paxton. 

    The story kept me on my toes. I had so many different theories about "who done it" the whole time. I had a list in my head of all the suspects, but one kept coming up in my mind. Only because it's usually someone you least expect. Was I right? I was on the right track, but wasn't positive until right near the end. 

    Torched was kind of a surprise for me. I knew I'd like it based on the description and the reviews that I've read, but it really did capture my attention. I'd defintely recommend it to my YA readers. It's fun, flirty, and overall enjoyable.
