I fell deeply in love with Switched and looked forward to diving into Torn. I didn't quite find what I was looking for once I settled into the pages of Wendy's story and her journey as she dealt with her new life as she learned the truth about her real family and her heritage.
I knew that Wendy didn't fit well with her mother, the Queen. So when Wendy happened to meet her father, the King, who happened to actually be alive and well and who had been fighting to get to her while she was in her mother's possession, I was ecstatic. The King and his wife were kind and I am a daddy's girl so I was so into this. Wendy didn't care for the Queen, I was totally anticipating a change or at least a big chance for her to hear him out. And it never even happened. I was seriously disappointed. I can't seem to wrap my head around why Wendy would believe and trust a mother who has already betrayed her, lied to her and that she doesn't even like. I was left very confused by all of this because it just didn't make sense to me. Wendy seemed like such a wise girl. The Queen did justify her lies, but that still didn't validate it in my book. In the end, roots were created, making sure her mother locked her in place.
