Altered Helix by Stephanie Hansen
(Altered Helix #1)
Young Adult, Dystopian, Paranormal Mystery, Novella
I didn’t want to take the traditional path. First, I wasn’t ready for college. Second, I was going to live with my best friend, Tiff, and work at the Haunted House. Third, did I mention the hot guy Josh that works there too?
The most exciting thing about Austria’s new job, at a local haunted house, was the fact that the toughest looking people screamed the loudest. But when she meets the boy without a home, Josh, Austria’s life takes intriguing and eventful turns. Up until now, Josh has managed to hang with his Street crowd, but they’re in danger, and so is Austria, the girl Josh recently fell for. The group finds themselves joining forces with previously considered enemies who also now find themselves in danger.
Deeply compassionate and full of twists, Altered Helix captures the struggle of polarized people that must work together for the greater good.
What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author and R&R Book Tours, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Altered Helix is a young adult, mystery, romance. This was such a quick read I was halfway through the book before I realized it.
This book has dystopian elements since this book takes place after the fall of the American National government, the States are left up to governing themselves and as a result, a lot of social programs have disappeared and there are more homeless people than those living in homes it seems.
This book kept me entertained the whole way through. The concept is interesting and I really like how the title of this book ties into the story. There were a few elements that I did not jive with me. This book is full of instalove and I just don’t care for that and I am not a big fan of dystopian stories.
I can not wait to continue the series and see where the story goes from here.
My Rating: /5
