STARTERS Launch Week!

Okay, so this is a super exciting time at the League. Our very own Lissa Price's debut, STARTERS, will hit shelves tomorrow! All this week you'll get to learn more about the book, more about Lissa, and have many opportunities to win great STARTERS prizes!

First, a little bit about the book, if you haven't heard of it.

About STARTERS: In the future, teens rent their bodies to seniors who want to be young again. One girl discovers her renter plans to do more than party – she plans to use the body to murder someone.

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!

Find out more about Lissa tomorrow in an interview, or by clicking on these links now:

But that's not all! There is a great swag package up for grabs today! By leaving a comment on this post, you'll be entered to win 5 signed STARTERS bookmarks, 3 postcards (1 signed, the other two for you to use), a pin button (not pictured, but included AND awesome!), and a wristband.


This giveaway is open only in the US. So leave a comment to enter!

Heard of STARTERS? Excited for it to come out? Already read it? Lay it on us!

I saw this cover the other day and added it to my Pinterest of my favourite cover designs - it's very impressive.

This cover was what initially sucked me in all those months ago and my eagerness to read this book hasn't waned since then.

I saw ARCS of this making the rounds on book review sites a couple months ago! It's an interesting twist on the the "body-swaping" concept.
