In Sloane’s world, true feelings are forbidden, teen suicide is an epidemic, and the only solution is The Program.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.

Suzanne Young schildert in ihrem Buch eine bedrückende, freudlose Zukunft. Weltweit bringen sich Jugendliche um - reihenweise, oft ohne ersichtlichen Grund. Anti-Depressive scheinen das nicht verhindern zu können, doch es gibt neue Hoffnung für verzweifelte Eltern, die um ihre Kinder fürchten: das "...
I really enjoyed this book! I liked how everything worked towards the ending. I also liked how everything worked out with her friendship and her boyfriend. This book was an eye opener for me. I know how big this epidemic is and I am glad that someone is writing about it.
