Lacey finds herself in JD after being abandoned by her parents. Her future seems bleak until she befriends Taylor and his friends.
Soon she finds herself in danger and Taylor (and his friends) are the only ones who can help her. It turns out she needs them more than she knew as she learns more about herself and her true purpose in life.
She is scared and confused but has no choice but to trust Taylor.
The bookcover looks homemade, dull and does nothing for the story. If it is, with a little practice and trying out various photo editors, it is possible to make professional looking covers.
After reading the book, I discovered the summary is too revealing. It needs a leave a little mystery. The script is not meant to tell the entire storyline in a nutshell. It is to tease or entice the reader to want to read the book, leaving the reader wanting to know more. While the script did encourage me to read the book, I was disappointed after reading the story that this was all there is.
I give the story 4 stars because regardless of the bookcover and the description, the writing is good and the story creative. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next in the series. I found the story original. The writing easily flows which makes the read quick and enjoyable. I definitely recommend to those who like a little mystery mixed with a little romance.
Altered - Revelations of the Evolved has a lot of unexpected moments and twists, that is, if you haven't read the summary. Since the summary is literally the whole book. I kept waiting for something else to happen but all major twists in story are already told there. I hate it when summaries are too spoilerish, it really kills the tension in the story.
Lacey is introduced to us as a very interesting and unusual character. After all, she is on her way to juvenile detention center. But as the story progressed I just could not connect to Lacey. She suffered from Cinderella complex and had some very unfortunate statements that to me sounded like slut-shaming:
"My cheeks blushed as a fantasy danced in my head of my lips pressing against him. What was wrong with me? I wasn't a harlot who searched for guys to randomly hook up with, especially in a place like this."
Everything came too easy for Lacey. She was The One. She knew how to use her awesome psychic skills without much practice. Romance was too instant for my taste too. I would have liked to see her working harder to achieve this.
Also, I didn't approve of the 'Robin Hood' philosophy Lacey's friends promoted and she accepted without second thought. Stealing from corrupt corporations who didn't earn that money the honest way is still stealing and no higher cause can justify that action.Read more ›
Lacey is just your average teenager, she makes mistakes. She's human. When she finally makes one mistake too many, she's sent to a juvenile facility in the mountains, Clear Waters. It's not all as it appeared in the brochure, but Lacey takes the hand that is dealt to her and tries to fit in. She makes some new friends and a cute boy named Taylor.
Taylor and she become quick friends and a romance begins to bud, but it takes a backseat to their escape plans. He convinces her that she has other abilities and explains that he is from the future. He tries to teach her own to use her abilities, as those in his time, those with the abilities are called Altered. He and his friends have traveled through time on a mission to change the past so that a world war doesn't break out in the future. Lacey's life has taken a complete change - she just needs to realize who she is and how she fits into everything.
Altered is a fast-paced adventure with complex characters with a solid plot. I was intrigued on how Currie spun her web and captured me in her tale without me even knowing it. A great young adult adventure that I'd recommend to anyone. I can't wait to read volume two and continue the adventure with Lacey and friends!
