Suzanne Young has created a compelling series about a difficult topic.
First, there was The Program. When suicide becomes a worldwide epidemic, the only treatment erases painful memories. Seventeen-year-old Sloane doesn't want The Program to steal memories of her dead brother and boyfriend. That would be a fate worse than death.
Then, there was The Treatment. Sloane considers taking The Treatment to unlock her memories, which she hopes will help her bring down The Program.
Tomorrow, there's The Remedy. This stand-alone prequel helps set the stage for other two titles.
