My Torin Paperback – December 22, 2017
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

“I don’t know how to love.”
“Love isn’t something you can control. It controls you. Fills you up and infects every part of you until all you can do is just live and breathe it every second of every day.”
“Sounds like a disease.”
“Love is a cure.”
Torin has lived his entire life trapped. He’s not like other people. His mind works differently. Tyler loves fiercely. His most enduring love has been for family. He and Torin have braved all of life’s storms together and, in spite of their differences, have made each other better and stronger for it. Casey was doomed from birth. Cursed by her mother’s habits and left as someone else’s problem. She’s never known love and never really lived.
“I’ll give you all the pennies, Casey. I’ll give you them all.”
My Torin was one of the most beautiful love stories. It was a soul-charging and soul-changing. In true K. Webster style, we get the unique and unusual, unraveling our hearts for each character as their story comes to life before our eyes. My heart soared and plummeted throughout many parts of this novel, each character contributing the necessary ingredients to make it one that I dare not turn away from. Courage, bravery, perseverance, adulation, and reverence; these qualities were in abundance.
“God is watching over us and testing us. He’s strengthening our hearts. This isn’t a game. It’s a plan.”
One of the most profound nuggets was taught by Torin, lived by Torin, felt and tasted by him. Sometimes there are no words for the things that overwhelm us in life. Sometimes they are just felt, with no verbalizations being adequate enough to relay the magnitude of their meaning. Just because someone is different, thinks different, feels different, relays love different, doesn’t mean they aren’t worthy of affection and attention.
“I breathelicktastetouchsmellfeelneed you.”
My Torin became my first Favorites of 2018 and one that I’m sure many readers will also relate with the same sentiment.
“When you never want to forget, you lock it away. You keep it until the end.”
This book is about Casey, who was born to a crack cocaine addicted woman who abandoned her at a church. Her life started out really bad and continued until she's 17. One day she comes 'home' and there is a man who wants her to come with him, and even though she doesn't know what his intentions are she feels safe. I myself didn't get any creepy vibes from him even though he acted that way a couple of times. Like Casey, I had to figure out what was going on myself.
"Two of the most abnormal people on Earth. Yet, right now, we fit in. We belong. Together, we make up something beautiful."
I am going to be super vague because I don't want to spoil anything. But the characters in this book all are very special and my heart went out to all of them. They take Casey into their home and give her something she never had: a loving/caring home and family. It isn't always easy to be part of this family and there are very difficult times, but they have each other. There were a couple of heartbreaking moments that had me in tears. A couple of things I saw coming early on in the story but the author had a couple of other surprises up her sleeve like always!
"Love isn't something you can control. It controls you. Fills you up and infects every part of you until all you can do is just live and breathe it every second of every day."
My Torin was an unusual love story, with broken characters. Both main characters are seen as weird or not normal, but in my opinion the things that make them different make them unique and beautiful. I loved seeing them growing as individuals and finding love. This was another original story by K. Webster, I can always count on her to come up with something new and refreshing. I highly recommend this book to my fellow book lovers.
