Friday Memes: Altered by Gennifer Albin

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week Altered by Gennifer Albin has reached the top of my Review stack. This is the sequel to Crewel. I got it from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. Here is the description of this Oct. 29 release:
Deadly Secrets
Tangled Lies
Woven truths

Life. Possibility. Choice. All taken from Adelice by the Guild—until she took them back.

But amid the splendid ruins of Earth, Adelice discovers how dangerous freedom can be. Hunted by soulless Remnants sent by Cormac Patton and the Guild, Adelice finds a world that’s far from deserted. Although allies are easy to find on Earth, knowing who to trust isn’t. Because everyone has secrets, especially those Adelice loves most. Secrets they would kill to protect. Secrets that will redefine each of them. Torn between two brothers and two worlds, Adelice must choose what to fight for.

 Altered is Gennifer Albin's thrilling sequel to Crewel. Adelice is about to learn how tangled up her past and future really are. Her parents ran to protect her, but nothing can save her from her destiny, and once she uncovers the truth, it will change everything.
Beginning:
They abandoned Earth.
Friday 56:
It's their eyes that scare me. Pupils dilated and stretched past the irises, extending into an infinite nothing.

  2. That short opening sentence would definitely compel me to read more. Now I'm trying to envision the eyes described in your Friday 56, and I can't quite do it! Sounds creepy for sure.
    Here's my Book Beginnings / Friday 56 post.
