Even though I found the story very flawed, I did enjoy Altered. It’s a good choice if you’re in the mood for action and cat and mouse chase scenes. Just don’t expect much attention be given to the worldbuilding and the issues that arise from it.

Synopsis

They were made to forget. But they'll never forgive.
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, light-hearted and playful; Trev, smart and caring; and Sam . . . who's stolen Anna's heart.

When the Branch decides it's time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape. Anna's father pushes her to go with them, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, at all costs.
On the run, with her father's warning in her head, Anna begins to doubt everything she thought she knew about herself. She 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.

Huumm, there isn't much to say about this book. I did like it a lot and couldn't put it down.
The whole concept is nice and the four boys made a nice combination that kept me glued to the pages. I...
