Review: Altered

Lacey stole a car and ends up in a juvenile detention center. Her Dad insists that leaving her there is for her own good. He doesn't visit or answers her calls. She's all alone until Taylor shows up. But who exactly is Taylor, and is he simply using her for his own ploy?

The book took off right away with lots of dialogue and no unnecessary narration. Despite knowing what Lacey did to get there, she seemed like a very sympathetic and sweet character. If life has taught her anything is that people shouldn't be trusted blindly, and it's good to see her doubt Taylor.  

I would've like to see her struggle more. Everything always seemed to come to place too fast. As to why Lacey is their only hope -- the question wasn't really answered. Guess I'll have to wait for book two to find out.


  1. Sounds interesting. It is funny but I agree with you I like to see a character go through a good bit to earn any sort of ending.

    1. Yeah, it's fun to see the stakes go high. Sometimes you succeed and sometimes you don't. Makes the story more real.

  2. Sounds great, but I hate when a book ends on that note.=/

  3. Oh, this book sounds interesting! I've read a lot of unpublished fiction on the Internet about juvenile detention centers, but never read a book about one... This one goes to my TBR!

  4. Nice book! It looks like a good one if you give a try for the second book even if you rated it with 3 hearts. I don't really like books where the action is too fast because I feel like I don't have time to enjoy one certain moment. Good review! Looking forward for the one for the second book. :)
