Teens who discover they were secretly genetically altered before birth are brought together at a classified site where they forge new friendships, find love, develop "super-abilities," and even unearth a conspiracy.
I was given an e-book/kindle copy of this book by the author and since reading it in November I've had a lot of time to think about it and try to think up a good review. Unfortunately I can't seem to so we are just going to go with a list of good and bad things about this book.
First the good:
#1- An interesting summery that makes me want to read it
#2- Some cute moments
#3- Some Mystery
#4- It kind of makes me want to read the next one
Now the bad:
#1- A ugly cover
#2- Too simple a plot, I figured out things way ahead of time
#3- Not enough depth to the characters
#4- Stupid names
So over all not the worst, but I really wouldn't recommended it. But I have to thank the author for sending me a copy.

In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Levine and psychologist Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory--the most advanced relationship science in existence today--can help readers find and sustain love.
This book was interesting and it changes the way you look at people. Like that you guy you liked who pushed you away? He is the avoidant type. Or that girl who scares all her boyfriends away by being so clingy? She's the anxious type. It shows you in very easy to follow scenarios all three attachment types anxious, secure or avoidant and how they can relate to the people you know. My problem with this book was the fact that after awhile the scenarios got repetitive and boring. Also the fact that they wanted you to write in the book to take the tests to determine you're type and I'm sorry I can't write in books, you could grab paper and do the tests but I ussally don't have paper with me while reading. So over all a pretty good book that allows you to examine the relationships around you.
I received this book through Goodread's Firstreads program.

Goodreads, firstreads is just publishers and authors giving away books to stir up intrest and get reviews you can find them by clicking on Goodreads's Giveaway button (inside the explore tab). I need to finish the book I'm currently reading and then will be starting on Attached and hopefully get a review up shortly after that, hopefully.
