Review: Altered by Shawnda Currie

Abandoned by her family, Lacey is sent to a juvenile detention center known as Clear Waters. Her teen years don't look promising until she is befriended by a mysterious stranger named Taylor, a gorgeous guy whose captivating eyes seem to stare into her soul. Convinced she is in danger at Clear Waters, Lacey joins Taylor in a daring escape. As she meets Taylor's group of friends, she discovers that they're more than they seem - they've been sent from the future to head off an evil corporate plot that will lead to a world war unless averted. With Lacey as their only hope to prevent a grim future, Taylor shows Lacey how to tap into her
psychic abilities known in his time as evolved humans. Travelling with her new friends, she discovers the magic of love while she grows into the powerful warrior chosen to make the difference to the world!
I have to be honest---I loved this book from the first page. Lacey Bennett, motherless young troublemaker, is sent to a 'rehabilitation center for troubled teens'. One innocent joyride resulting in the death of her friend causes Lacey's dad and step-mom to send her to the center. Once there, Lacey meets handsome Taylor and begins an epic adventure. I don't do spoilers so I can't be very specific about the book. What I can say is that this isn't the normal troubled teen story. Altered has mystery, romance, sci-fi aspects, and a lot of adventure contained within its deceptively thin pages. Lacey grows into a stronger and more mature young woman as she is faced with some very sobering truths that other teenagers probably wouldn't have been able to handle. She is cut off from her family, hunted by bad guys, and must save the world. The best part is that there will be a SEQUEL which I will be eagerly awaiting!
