Waiting on Wednesday-The Program by Suzanne Young

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 

Title:  The Program
Author: Suzanne Young
Release Date: 30 April 2013 (Simon Pulse)
Link to / Summary from Goodreads: 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 want it: A dystopian take on mental illness. I definitely want to see how this is pulled off. Though I don’t really like the last line of the summary. A little cliché. Aside from that, I definitely want to read this.

  4. Hi - New Follower

    I've seen a few WoW's promoting this book and it sounds like an interesting and an increasingly socially relevant book framed in a Dystopian context.

    Great pick.

  5. This sounds totally awesome! Suicide is such an important topic, and then to pair that with dystopia? Seriously genius. Although I agree about that last sentence- a little cliche. But I'm hoping the book will end up being really unique and amazing! =)

    Awesome pick!!
