Torched by April Henry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ellie is sixteen and has parents who like to support environmental causes. Only problem is, one day her parents are arrested on marijuana charges and Ellie is forced to spy for the FBI and become involved in ecoterrorism or else--- Ellie will go into foster care and her parents would go to jail forever unless she goes undercover to help them. Ellie begins meeting with Mother Earth Defenders (MED); she has convinced them of her earnestness. She also begins to fall for Coyote, another member who has been involved with MED for a few years. The suspense is gripping, Ellie's fear is palpable, but she is determined to save her parents no matter what. She is resourceful and determined. Great for reluctant readers too.
