Teaser Tuesday: The Program by Suzanne Young {51}

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Title: The Program
Author: Suzanne Young
Release date: April 30, 2013
Pages: 405
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.
My teaser, from 46% in the ebook:
"Here." She offers the yellow pill. "Take it. Empower yourself, sweetheart. It'll make everything right."

I consider her offer. Then I think of Roger's disgusting mouth on mine. I think of how his purple pill will let me hold on to some of my memories. So instead I look at Dr. Warren and say, "Go to hell."

And then someone grabs me, and I feel a pinch in my arm.
I'm reading this right now and, I must say, it's pretty interesting. It's been touted as dystopian, but I don't believe that one bit. Veeeeerrrryyyy interesting, though.

I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! Have a lovely Tuesday!
