Reviewer Annie, 14, read Altered by Jennifer Rush. She heard about this sci-fi adventure through Goodreads and was entertained by it. Here is her review: "Altered is told from Anna's point of view, a 16 year old girl whose dad works for 'The Branch,' conducting experiments on four boys in her basement. When the boys escape, she goes with them. A side effect of the experiments is none of the boys remember life from before. Anna goes with them as Sam, the leader of the boys, tries to find more information about The Branch and about himself. The book itself was very well-rounded. Nothing was left unsaid, which leads me to wonder what will happen in the next book. Altered would be OK as a stand-alone novel. There were a lot of unexpected turns that kept the story interesting. A lot of things happened that I didn't see coming. I loved Cas's character because he kept everything light in an otherwise dark situation. Overall, Altered was very entertaining and thought-provoking." Altered is the first book in a new series. It's sequel, Erased, is due out in January.
