Starters

Sixteen-year-old Callie lost her parents when the genocide spore wiped out everyone except those who were vaccinated first - the very young and very old. With no grandparents to claim Callie and her little brother, they go on the run, living as squatters, and fighting off unclaimed renegades who would kill for a cookie. Hope comes via Prime Destinations, run by a mysterious figure known only as The Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to seniors, known as enders, who get to be young again.

    Story
    "It's no "Hunger Games""

    Although I'm an adult, I often read stories written for teens. I liked "Hunger Games," the first book, anyway. This book didn't compare to it. While I could believe in the "Hunger Games" world, the world Lissa Price created has so many holes in it that believablity leaks from it like water from a sieve, leaving us with an unrealistic, unbelievable, world.

    I liked the premise of the story, body switching, but nothing else about this story made any sense. I won't give more detail, lest I spoil it for those that might still wish to read it, but long before the end I was struggling to listen and only finished it because my granddaughter wanted me to read it.

    I thought the narrator did an admirable job. She just didn't have much of a story to tell.

    "Good Science Fiction for Young Adults Plus"

    I enjoyed this book. Interesting young adult novel. A little muddy in parts but worth the listen if you like Sci-Fi. Thoughtful concepts on aging and the chase for eternal youth.
