This week my pick is The Program by Suzanne Young
Expected Publication date: April 30th, 2013
Publisher Simon Pulse
Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone.
With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.
Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in.
And The Program is coming for them.
Why I chose this:
So it would seem lately that I've had a soft spot for dystopians which is weird because last year I didn't really care to much for them, but with all of them that are coming out lately it seems that its maybe the new craze. Vampires...who? Societies bent on controlling everyone..Check! This sounds a bit different then most of them, and I enjoyed the authors previous work A Need so Beautiful. I'm hoping I'll enjoy this one just as much. :)
