"They were made to forget. But they'll never forgive."
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, solemn and brooding; Cas, light-hearted and playful; Trev, smart and caring; and Sam . . . who's stolen Anna's heart.
When the Branch decides it's time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape. Anna's father pushes her to go with them, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, "at all costs."
On the run, with her father's warning in her head, Anna begins to doubt everything she thought she knew about herself. She 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.

Review by Library Journal (2013-07-26)

Debut author Rush's unforgettable YA novel addresses the challenges of learning that you can't rely on your own memories. Annie and the four genetically altered boys who live in her basement escape from the Branch and are on the run while trying to piece together their lives. What they learn is shocking and deadly. Will they be able to beat the Branch and get their freedom? The story is fast paced and holds listeners' attention until every twist has come and gone.

Casey Holloway does a decent job narrating, though at times it sounds a bit choppy. However, the story is so well done that you cannot help but be drawn into their world as they struggle to put the pieces of their lives together.

Verdict: Fans of SF and fantasy YA novels as well as those who enjoy psychological thrillers will appreciate this title.

Book description

They were made to forget. But they'll never forgive.

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, solemn and brooding; Cas, light-hearted and playful; Trev, smart and caring; and Sam... who's stolen Anna's heart.

When the Branch decides it's time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape. Anna's father pushes her to go with them, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, at all costs.

On the run, with her father's warning in her head, Anna begins to doubt everything she thought she knew about herself. She 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.
