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.
3/5 stars (liked it)
I didn't like Sloane at first but grew to like her. What I didn't understand is why suicide was such an epidemic among young adults. But other than that the book was good. Sloane is in the program and as she loves her memories, which happens slowly, we see a little change in her. We follow her after she leaves the program and meets some people she knew before but doesn't know now. I will definitely read the next one.
