The Program (YA)
Book #42 Read in 2013
The Program (YA) by Suzanne Young
An epidemic is spreading--suicide among teenagers and "the Program" is the cure. Sloane's brother Brady commits suicide. This places Sloane and her boyfriend/Brady's best friend James on a watch list by the Program. If they are placed in the Program, all of their memories, good and bad, will be wiped cleaned and then the "disease" will be removed from the brains, preventing their suicide. But is this truly the right thing to do? To make it that they have no knowledge of who they are or their feelings for each other? Sloane is not sure and she strives to hang on to her memories.
This book was a great read. There was a lot of action and twists and turns. The characters were well written and interesting, especially Sloane, James and Realm. There was a romantic element to the book that was interesting but not overpowering. I enjoyed this book a lot.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review from the Amazon Vine program.
