Wishlist Wednesday (13)

Hi! Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper. This weekly bookish meme has you feature a book that you are dying to add to your shelves. This week that book is:






The Program by Suzanne Young

Book Blurb from Goodreads:

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.

This book's premise is  really unique and intriguing. The concept of suicide being an international epidemic and that there is a watchful eye kept on teens to make sure that they don't have any symptoms is kinda creepy. And the mystery built into this story, wondering what happens to teens when they enter The Program and why do they have no memories makes me want to rush out and pick this one up, it sounds like a promising good read!
