Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
My pick for this week is The Program by Suzanne Young - it's not out for like almost ten months and, based on this synopsis, those are going to be long months . . .
Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone.Does that not sound like something you'd love to read? I know I would . . . see, YA lit alone is building up reasons the Mayans have to be wrong ;-) I'm very eager to read this one!
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.
The Program is out April 30, 2013 and released by Simon Pulse
a Goodreads link would be helpful, huh? That's what I get for being fuzzy this morning - sorry!
** On a blog note, my review of This is Not a Test is coming up - it'll be a bit late, though
