Waiting on Wednesday! (10)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we tell y'all about the books we cannot wait to get our hands on!
Altered by Jennifer Rush
Expected Publication: January 2, 2013
Publisher: Little, Brown & Co.
Description from Goodreads:
Altered (Altered, #1)"A story that starts with a girl and a boy. A girl who loves a boy so much , she'll risk anything for him. And a boy who knows only one thing--- kill anyone who stands in his way.

When you can’t trust yourself, who can you believe?"

Everything about Anna’s life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There’s Nick, Cas, Trev . . . and Sam, who’s stolen Anna’s heart. When the Branch decides it’s time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them.

Anna is torn between following Sam or staying behind in the safety of her everyday life. But her father pushes her to flee, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, at all costs. There’s just one problem. Sam and the boys don’t remember anything before living in the lab—not even their true identities.
Now on the run, Anna soon discovers that she and Sam are connected in more ways than either of them expected. And if they’re both going to survive, they must piece together the clues of their past before the Branch catches up to them and steals it all away.
Why I'm waiting on this:
Three reasons--
1. See that first little quote at the top. About a story with a girl and a boy... Well, that alone looks like my kind of story.
2. "There's Nick, Cas, Trev . . . and Sam. . . " I love stories with a bunch of boys and one girl thrown in. Especially when the majority of them are jerks. Because that usually means they're funny. I just have a feeling that there's going to be some humor in this. I am so excited!
3. "But her father pushes her to flee, making Sam promise to keep her away . . ." It doesn't matter what the rest says. What I got from that is "Cute boy promises to do something in the best interest of the girl, and it's amazingly sweet. . . " Because it will be. And no doubt this Sam will be all kinds of attractive. All the boys probably will be.
OH, and I have a fourth reason!
4. This book just looks like it's going to be so much fun! To read AND to review. I mean, look at how much I got out of the description. Goodness knows what will happen once I have the whole BOOK in my hands. Oh yeah, I'm excited!
