Can Sloane and James survive the lies and secrets surrounding them, or will The Program claim them in the end? Find out in this sequel to The Program, which Publishers Weekly called “chilling and suspenseful.”

How do you stop an epidemic?

Sloane and James are on the run after barely surviving the suicide epidemic and The Program. But they’re not out of danger. Huge pieces of their memories are still missing, and although Sloane and James have found their way back to each other, The Program isn’t ready to let them go.

Escaping with a group of troubled rebels, Sloane and James will have to figure out who they can trust, and how to take down The Program. But for as far as they’ve come, there’s still a lot Sloane and James can’t remember. The key to unlocking their past lies with the Treatment—a pill that can bring back forgotten memories, but at a high cost. And there’s only one dose.

Ultimately when the stakes are at their highest, can Sloane and James survive the many lies and secrets surrounding them, or will The Program claim them in the end?

My Review

What you’re in for: Rebels. Romance. Friendship. On the run. Stolen memories. Suicide. Deception.

The Ending: A bit abrupt and not completely satisfying. I feel like a lot of things were still left up in the air when it came to explanations and such.

Am I glad I read it? Yes. I loved The Program and this was a decent sequel. I’m also a fan of duologies. I didn’t like this one quite as much as its predecessor, but it was still good and it was captivating and kept my interest throughout. Overall, a decent sequel to The Program. I would recommend this series. It has a unique premise that is delivered well.

4 stars blue
