Altered - Jennifer Rush 4-1/2 stars, even though Sam broke my heart a little.

Full review (including a much better summary) can be found on the Fictionators.

Full disclosure here. When I was at BEA this summer, I wanted this book…bad. Why?

Did you see the cover?

Yes, I admit. I’m a total cover h00r. And this one is beautiful. Then I read the summary and knew I would be hooked. This book was non-stop, heart-palpitating, cannotbelievethatjusthappened action, and I think you will love it.

Anna lives with her scientist father on their farm in New York. He runs a lab that researches genetically altered boys. Yep, that's right. There are four boys in Anna's basement, all in cells, all under laboratory scrutiny. Anna helps out with the research, which as far as she knows is monitoring them on their way to becoming super-soldiers.

The boys are all different and bring different characteristics to the table, and Anna enjoys spending time with almost all of them. Especially Sam.

There's a breakout and at the insistence of her father, Anna goes with the boys. What happens next and throughout the entire book is blockbuster movie-worthy action thriller. There were a few things that happened that gutted me, and a few things that shocked the hell out of me. I was surprised how much I liked all of the boys. I loved the conflict that Anna constantly feels between following her head and following her heart. I loved how (almost) everything played out. Jennifer Rush tells a great story.

I can’t tell you much else without giving everything away, but I will say that I died when I read this:
I will find you.

And he drinks orange juice. js

I am so happy that I read this book, and I can't wait for you to read it.
