Giveaway: Altered and author interview with Aubrey Coletti

AlteredAltered by Aubrey Coletti
When Toni, Joseph and Charlie arrive at their new boarding school, they are glad to leave their families - and respective problems - behind. Isolated as boarders, they meet a handsome senior with a personality like iced snake's blood, teachers with a penchant for physical punishment, and four other outcasts who reveal that their being brought to the Academy wasn't random at all. When the arrivals discover that their new school is engaged in "behavior modification" through electric shocks, isolation, restraints, and an ever-evolving set of methods to "fix" them, they declare war on their Academy. During their campaign of sabotage, they fight, hate, scorn, love, and begin to uncover the reasons why they were brought to the school. But as their war against the school escalates beyond their control, will they become the very things the Academy believes they are: dangerous, delinquent - and mad?

  1. I like the sound of this one, it sounds quite different from what I have been reading recently and might be a nice change of pace :) Thanks Brandi and Aubrey :)
    I also like that last line of the tweets - catch you next time - unless they catch me!

  2. This book sounds like it would be an intense interesting read.. the tweets were awesome and makes me want to read the book even more!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Thanks for the giveaway. I would love to read this book. It sounds really good.

  4. What an interesting concept! I hope to win! Insightful interview. I'm shaking with anticipation! Gosh, another book!

  5. Awesome interview! Altered sounds very interesting and I am looking forward to reading it soon. Thank you so much for the great giveaway!

  6. I really like how this story sounds, it's a bit dark, and it kind of reminds me of the beginning of The Wizard Heir by Cinda Williams Chima, the whole issue with how much these people are damaging the students. Seems like the kind of read I'm angsty while reading it, because it seems so intense.
    Thanks for the giveaway, btw.
