Summary (from Goodreads):
When you can’t trust yourself, who can you believe?
Everything about Anna’s life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There’s Nick, Cas, Trev . . . and Sam, who’s stolen Anna’s heart. When the Branch decides it’s time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them.
Anna is torn between following Sam or staying behind in the safety of her everyday life. But her father pushes her to flee, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, at all costs. There’s just one problem. Sam and the boys don’t remember anything before living in the lab—not even their true identities.
Now on the run, Anna soon discovers that she and Sam are connected in more ways than either of them expected. And if they’re both going to survive, they must piece together the clues of their past before the Branch catches up to them and steals it all away.
Doesn't Jennifer Rush's debut novel Altered sound absolutely thrilling and suspenseful? I sure think so! I've been keeping an eye on this book for quite awhile now, and time seems to be crawling by for its release date. I'm curious about the Branch's mission and what plans they have in store for the boys, and why Anna's father is so adamant that she run away with Sam while she still can. I can't wait to get my hands on Altered and read it right away!
