Much better than I thought it would be. I'm hoping the series doesn't deteriorate as it continues as many seem to lately. Looking forward to the next book.

So good, but so painful to get through! Yeah, there are funny moments and cute scenes, but for the most part The Program just continually rips your heart out and refuses to apologize. Leaves you with a lot to think about, and certainly a greater appreciation for what you do have. Great, but tough and emotionally draining.

When I started reading this book I had to drag myself through the first couple chapters. I just didn't find the first scene very gripping and I hated James. But now that I finished the book I see why he had to be so severe to Sloane; I now know he did it in an attempt to save her. I cried so much in this book. This was probably the saddest/happiest book I have read. Thumbs up!

Suicide is an international epidemic. The only way to prevent it is The Program. You go willingly or unwillingly. They erase your mind. Sloane's brother,Brady, jumped off a cliff. Her parents will do anything to keep her alive. Even if it means putting her in The Program. Two of her best friends: James and Miller, will do anything to stay out of The Program. So when Miller learns that The Program is coming for him,he takes QuikDeath. Weeks later, Sloane's boyfriend James is taken. After a month or two, James comes back. Except he doesn't remember Sloane. His memory is wiped. Sloane's sadness over James lands her in The Program, and it's her parent's fault. Will she make it out with her memory? Or will she lose it all? The Treatment comes out April 29th, 2014.

As I was reading I felt as if I were in the program. The story line was great. Somethings in the book I questioned a lot and still do.

I loved this book! It really dove into the moral controversy of forcing those underage to get 'help' and how it impacted their lives. Very sad, and you feel as powerless as Sloane both in the program and before, as she tries to get through her life, day after day pretending to be happy. Can't wait for the continuation.

“You're right, you know," he says. "You're just right for me. And I'd bet my life that we've done this before. Because I can't imagine that I wouldn't have fallen in love with you the first time.”

“After all, suicide is contagious.”

“He's tender and defenceless, as if every part of him is exposed. He's not the asshole I thought he was, not even close. What I see is someone broken and fierce. Someone loyal and hardened. Someone who could belong to me completely, and me to him.”

“I'm so alone it's like being dead but still conscious”

“You know I'm never going to be able to not kiss you again, right?" he said. "For the rest of my life, every time I look at you, I'll have to kiss you.”

“If it's meant to be, you'll find each other again.”

“...some things are better left in the past. And true things are destined to repeat themselves.”
