    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, solemn and brooding; Cas, lighthearted and playful; Trev, smart and caring; and Sam...who's stolen Anna's heart. Reserved and always controlled, Sam does everything with purpose. When the Branch decides it's time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them.

    Amazon Customer says: "Loved the suspense!"
    "Great Story, Robotic Reader"

    Story
    If you could sum up Altered in three words, what would they be?

    It is a lot like The Bourne series for teens.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Altered?

    The moments when Anna finds out who she is and who she isn't.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader was robotic, a great annoyance that I only put up with because the story was so good. One of my friends walked into the room when I was listening and commented how horrible the reader was after listening for 10 seconds. The pacing and inflection was monotone. I started wondering if I could be a reader if people with so little feel for the characters could be hired.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it was fun escapism.
