ATOMR Presents Altered (The Academy #1) by Aubrey Coletti Blog Tour Stop

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?

My Review

5 of 5 Altered

Altered is one of those stories that draws you in and keeps you reading because you just have to know what happens to the characters. It is a story told from multiple characters but it is done in a way where things flow smoothly and you are able to get a picture of the way things are for each character and where that character is at at the time the story is being told. 

Can you imagine one day you are living a normal life and the next your parents have placed you in this boarding school for children with behavioral issues. Well this is the case for Toni, Joseph, Charlie, and so many more children. They are sent to this school where they are supposed to teach your child how to behave by using Corporal Punishment.

Well the gang decides they have had enough and they declare war on the school and fight back. They have decided they will no longer be electrocuted, isolated, restrained, or any other form of punishment the teachers want to dole out. They fight back and what happens next is totally epic and told from different points of view makes the story so much more interesting. This is a must read for all of those who love mystery reads. 

Aubrey brought it home with this one and I am so glad I was able to read this book!

While I love the sound of this, I'm not fond of alternating POVs
