Review by: Jenn
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.

4 stars out of 5 stars

If I loved The Program way back when I first read it a few years ago, hearing the audiobook made me realize how much I loved Suzanne's ways with words. The narrator hooked me in and I couldn't put the book down, so to speak. I was crying at all the right places and hurting along with Sloane.  I was reminded of how heartbreaking this book was and how scary the program is. I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the series and I really hope that it is the same narrator for all of them as I think she did a great job.
