Ellie's parents have always been eccentric hippies. They start having MED or Mother Earth Defenders, hanging out in their front room. They all seem to be very devoted and there is a cute boy named Coyote.
It turns out that the cops have been watching her house and her parents are growing marijuana. Her parents aren't as young as they were. Ellie's father doesn't have the best heart and might not be able to handle jail.Ellie has a chosen to work for the FBI and go undercover to spy on the MEDics. She is now closer to Coyote, but it comes with a cost. The MEDics' cause can dangerous. Especially when protecting the Earth might cause a lost of lives.
Torched is a fairly great book. The characters are fairly awesome. The plot is really exciting. It was really action packed. I felt that there were a few things that I didn't like, Ellie and Coyote's relationship seemed over developed. The message was amazing though, that sometimes too much of a good thing can turn out to be overall bad.
Peace out, Sarah.
