Book Review: Altered by Jennifer Rush
The door shut behind him and his footsteps pounded down the steps. I whirled on Nick. “Why did you do that?”
Anna and her father are working on a top secret project for The Branch- involving the splendid and genetically altered Boys (Sam, Trev, Cas and Nick) and an attempt to turn them into the perfect soldiers. Hidden underneath their farmhouse, Anna assists by taking blood samples, making notes, and interacting with The Boys, but never knows what the project is, or what the end goal is. However, there is one thing she knows- she is especially connected to Sam, more so than is safe. When The Branch decide that the project is over and collect their specimens, The Boys and Anna escape and go on the run across the country away from the farm and following clues to discover the missing memories of Sam and hopefully why they were in the project to begin with. Yet, even though Anna’s attraction to Sam is growing stronger with each passing moment, could his past break them apart?
