I really did not like Altered. To start off, this girl has four boys locked in her basement for testing. But does she think about how wrong it is to keep prisoners in your basement? Does she ever wonder what they are there for? Does she show any feelings at all? No!!! The only thing she cared about was how hot one of the boys, Sam, was. Is this a realistic reaction? I think not. And that was just the start of a very infuriating read. The idea behind the book showed promise, but unfortunately for this book I think something got lost in translation.
