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.
Hands down, this book is absolutely fabulous. I loved this book. I could go on and on about it for hours. Its written beautifully. The author has made a very ridiculous idea (suicide epidemic) seem so real. It made me laugh, cry and smile through the tears. It is full of suspense and I could not put down this book(or my mobile since I am reading it on kindle). I was hooked. I repeat, I could not put this book (my mobile) down. I loved every moment. I loved Sloane, James(oh Jaames), Miller, Lacey, Brady, Realm and others. At first, it's a struggle, to hide true feeling, keeping love intact, staying together, putting walls up, protecting yourself, not giving up or breaking. There were so many ups and downs. Sloane is fighting, struggling, holding back. Or at least trying to appear well. Everyone around is giving up so it's hard not to just let go. Sloane holding on to thin threads, promises made out of love and desperation. But it's the final straw, when the most near person to you gives up, you can't do it anymore. And when he comes back, and you're nobody to him; you're lost too. Its breathtaking and painful- losing a love. I was full on sobbing. It still does not get better. Not when you're the next victim. Then, comes in Realm- he gives that ray of hope, brings her chicken nuggets(equally important), loves her unconditionally. After that Sloane's discovers herself again, gets hurt again and falls for him (not telling whom) all over again. The ending is amazing. Freedom. In love "madly". Overall The Program was a satisfying and captivating read. It was heart wrenching, frustrating to the point where I wanted to shred the book to pieces, and had beautifully written romance. I would highly suggest this to patient and strong minded people. If you have anger problems, make sure you don't read this! Also, this book was so depressing it got me depressed. Oops... I guess "The Program" will be coming for me... This book is amazing. I have texted Raven like a million times telling her that(I'm not sorry for annoying her). Its enrapturing, capturing, enthralling, fascinating, ravishing and bewitching and spellbinding. I rate this book 6 out of 5!! This has taken place of my favorite book. To everyone and anyone who's reading this review, go read this book. Lots of love and more love Beez (Sabah)
