The program

The Program (The Program, #1)The Program by Suzanne Young
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The teen suicide epidemic has become so widespread that some cities are piloting The Program, where teens flagged as being "at-risk" are whisked away for six weeks of therapy. But when they return, their memories have been wiped and they don't remember their former friends or significant others.

Sloane Jacobs is 17 years old and her older brother committed suicide a couple of years ago. They were so close and she never saw it coming. Then just a few months ago her best friend was taken into The Program, and Sloane didn’t even know she was depressed. The depression can set in so fast and Sloane can’t lose anyone else in her life. She has a hard time hiding how hard it has been on her to lose all these people she cares about, but she knows better than to show emotions in front of others. The Program is always watching and the only person she can really be herself around is James. He was best friends with her brother and he has been Sloane’s boyfriend for the last two years. They have promised to protect each other from The Program. But with everything that has happened and all the loss they have experienced the depression is starting to set in and there is only two options left for them. Either they die or they go to The Program.

I thought the ending of the book was perfect, however I cannot wait to get my greedy hands on the second book
