Waiting on Wednesday #2: The Program


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on:
The Program by Suzanne Young.
Expected Publication: April 30, 2013
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Genre: YA Dystopian.

Goodreads Summary:
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.

Why I'm excited: I love YA dystopian novels! Something about the genre really intrigues me. Especially ones that are possible futures for our world. You never know, right?

What are you waiting on this week?
