*Please note, this review was based from an ARC copy*

   Let me start by saying that The Program has demanded it's way into by top 10 for 2013. I read many books every year but when you get one that screams when opened, I know it will be added to the list of favorites.
   My copy is an ARC so I'm not too sure if the published copy is like this, but there are three parts to the story and every part begins at page one, so it's like three stories inside. This is the first I have seen of this and really found it interesting.

   The story is about a time when a massively high amount of youth suffer from severe depression and thus, commit suicide if given the opportunity. There has been much work into helping save the kids and close observation is made for everyone. If signs are showing, they are whisked off to a place that everyone in their right mind fears. A place that alters your state of mind, making the children lose their memories and allowing them to return back to their lives as someone that they are not. Someone incredibly different than who they were because they have lost that person along the way. The children are said to be recovered, but anyone in their right mind knows better.

  Sloane has had many friends and family that have committed suicide. She has all eyes on her now and can't even get the time she so deserves to grieve for her lost loved ones. She knows that the life she lives will end up getting disrupted and makes quick decision to hide her past so her future won't be left blank. Her journey is far more unpredictable than anyone could imagine.

Received from Simon & Schuster for review purposes.


  1. Great review hon!! I liked this one, but I still felt that so much was left unanswered. I will definitely continue the series though.

  2. I've seen this one around, but I didn't realize it was in the three section format you mentioned. That's actually pretty cool sounding! It definitely seems interesting.

  3. I haven't heard too many reviews of this book, but I'm definitely intrigued by the fact that the few that I *have* seen are really good! I also love that the author took a different approach with the three-section format. That's neat! Lovely review :)
