    A Very Outgoing Boy

    The book I read was very adventurous, exciting, and suspenseful. Throughout the book I was on the edge of my seat always guessing what was going to happen next. It began with a boy named Declan experiencing the lost of his father, mother, and sister. Following this he was sent to live with his uncle. Once arriving he tried to escape, but was caught and was taken back to his uncle. When he returned his uncle made a promise that if he stayed till Christmas he would be free to go. In order to figure out if Declan stays or returns to his homeland, you will have to read the rest of the book. If you like to read at all you will like this book.

    A realistic story

    To my mind the book is a realistic, interesting and dramatic story. The conflicts in Ireland are present authentically. I ate up that book, because the book is full of emotions and the problems, the author describes, aroused my interest in that Irish conflict.

    Nice book!

    'Torn away' is a nice book...its very simple to read. Some passages are a little bit boring but the most passages are very interesting and exciting! Its very funny if you try to identify yourself with the main charakter of the book called 'Declan'. The book is quite 'ok'.... greetings martin P.S. But it doesnt really rule!

    A realistic story full of adventure...

    In my opinion the book 'Torn Away' from the author James Heneghan,who writes very realistic,explain the dramatic experiences of the young boy Declan whos family have been killed in the violence of Northern Ireland.This book is full of feelings and there is on the one side the harmful and peaceful Canada where the Doyles live and on the other side the dangerous fights in Northern Ireland where is Declan's home.Declan is in an inner conflict with himself and this the author presents very authenticly in my opinion.
