Meet a New Debut YA Author and Win – ALTERED by Jennifer Rush


I plan on presenting you with some wonderful new authors this year, as well as some sequels by known YA authors. Jennifer Rush’s YA futuristic thriller Altered is something I think many of you will be interested in. There’s a strong female main character as well as secrets, lies and hot guys. It’s a fast read with action. I don’t see the age range on the book sites, but I would guess it is 14 and up.

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, Β at all costs.

Jennifer Rush began telling lies at the age of five and was immediately hooked. Fiction was far better than reality, and she spent most of her teens writing (about vampires, naturally). She currently lives in Michigan with her husband and two kids and enjoys eating ice cream in her spare time. Altered is her debut novel which you can buy here. You can find out more on her website at or follow her on twitter @jenn_rush
