Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
The Program by Suzanne Young
Expected Release Date: April 30, 2013
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.
(summary via Goodreads)
This one has an eye-catching cover and an intriguing premise. While the whole suicide thing isn’t necessarily something that hooks me immediately (I don’t mean to sound callous, but personal preference and all that), it feels as though it might be part of a larger issue in this book. What worries me is that this is the sort of book that feels like the start of a trilogy, and I’m so over trilogies at this point it’s not even funny.
Either way, I’m looking forward to this one.
What are you waiting on this week?
