I am super stoked to see how Suzanne Young‘s dystopian young adult series The Program ends in its second instalment, which is my Waiting On Wednesday choice this week! I really enjoyed the first book, The Program, so I can’t wait to see what Young has in store for her world where teenage suicide has become an epidemic and is being monitored closely and its characters that try to keep their memories from being erased. The Program was a frightening depiction of the future, even for the dystopian genre (I mean, damn, that epilogue was absolutely terrifying). Young’s unique concept will surely make for a great finale! The Treatment releases April 29th via Simon Pulse, so there’s plenty of time to check out the first book if you haven’t yet! 😉
How do you stop an epidemic? Sloane and James are on the run after barely surviving the suicide epidemic and The Program. But they’re not out of danger. Huge pieces of their memories are still missing, and although Sloane and James have found their way back to each other, The Program isn’t ready to let them go. Escaping with a group of troubled rebels, Sloane and James will have to figure out who they can trust, and how to take down The Program. But for as far as they’ve come, there’s still a lot Sloane and James can’t remember. The key to unlocking their past lies with the Treatment—a pill that can bring back forgotten memories, but at a high cost. And there’s only one dose. Ultimately when the stakes are at their highest, can Sloane and James survive the many lies and secrets surrounding them, or will The Program claim them in the end?
