First, a little bit about the book, if you haven't heard of it.
Sixteen-year-old Callie lost her parents when the genocide spore wiped out everyone except those who were vaccinated first–the very young and very old. With no grandparents to claim Callie and her little brother, they go on the run, living as squatters, and fighting off unclaimed renegades who would kill for a cookie.
Hope comes via Prime Destinations, run by a mysterious figure known only as The Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to seniors, known as Enders, who get to be young again. Callie’s neurochip malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her rich renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, even dating Blake, the grandson of a senator. It’s a fairy-tale new life . . . until she uncovers the Body Bank’s horrible plan…
I was lucky enough to get an e-Galley through NetGalley, and I read this book a couple of months ago. My first thought? "Man, I wish I had thought of this!" It is a great concept, and not only that, but it's carried out well.
If you like dystopian novels with lots of action and the promise of kissing, you'll like STARTERS. If you like to be surprised in your plot, you'll like STARTERS. And if you like some pretty cool science fiction, you'll like STARTERS.
You can pre-order your copy, but you won't have to wait long! STARTERS releases tomorrow!
There is also a short story, PORTRAIT OF A STARTER, available now!
