Waiting On Wednesday: The Program by Suzanne Young


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It is an opportunity for us to show books we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week, my pick is:


The Program by Suzanne Young
Release Date: April 30th, 2013
Publisher: Simon Pulse
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.
This sounds really intriguing and creppy. I'm really curious to read about this program that leaves teenager blank, and this suicide epidemic. I'm really curious about it.

  7. This does sound AMAZING! My only fear is that it doesn't understand the science behind depression, but otherwise it sounds like Delirium in a good way.

  57. Hi there! Sorry it took me so long to comment back. The Program is not something I would think to pick up on my own since I tend to stay in the paranormal area of the book store, but after reading the blurb this sounds like a really entertaining read! Maybe a little thrilling? It makes me think of Hunger Games for some reason. Cool choice.
