How do you stop an epidemic?

Sloane and James are on the run after barely surviving the suicide epidemic and The Program. But they’re not out of danger. Huge pieces of their memories are still missing, and although Sloane and James have found their way back to each other, The Program isn’t ready to let them go.

Escaping with a group of troubled rebels, Sloane and James will have to figure out who they can trust, and how to take down The Program. But for as far as they’ve come, there’s still a lot Sloane and James can’t remember. The key to unlocking their past lies with the Treatment - a pill that can bring back forgotten memories, but at a high cost. And there’s only one dose.

Ultimately when the stakes are at their highest, can Sloane and James survive the many lies and secrets surrounding them, or will The Program claim them in the end?

    "VERY Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about The Treatment?

    I found the story to be kind of boring and redundant.


    Any additional comments?

    I had been really looking forward to this sequel to The Program. Although both stories are geared towards a YA audience, I found The Program to be interesting and suspenseful enough to hold my attention throughout the book. I was expecting The Treatment to be just as captivating while it filled in my questions of what happened to the kids from the first book. Instead it felt like a lazy follow up. An example of that would be that towards the end of the book, I felt like events were just tossed together to bring it to an end already. It did not flow smoothly; it felt choppy and kind of dumb. Very disappointed. :(

    "Mixed Review"

    I loved The Program and couldn't wait to listen to The Treatment. I didn't love it nearly as much I would have if it had been a stand alone book. This is because it was as if the author was hoping that we'd all forget some of the conversations and scenes from The Program. I don't want to give anything away but as an example in The Program a character would say "This is XYZ" and in The Treatment the same character would say "Can you believe this is XYZ? I didn't know that". This happened at least twice and I don't think it added to the plot at all so it made me wonder. There is also a more nitpicky critique that a scene from The Program was related again in The Treatment but the brand of soda mentioned changed from Diet Coke to Diet Pepsi. Why?

    The narrator did a good job and it helps that I am used to her voice/style from The Program. She seems to have problems with accents, but mostly did just fine.

    So now, here is what I liked: I enjoyed the fact that this book completed the story without unnecessarily stretching it out into a 3rd book. The characters were nicely fleshed out and were all flawed and layered rather than being one dimensional. The story moved along quickly and kept me guessing. It was interesting enough to keep me listening. The best part was that the ending was very satisfying and I will admit to getting a little teary.

    All in all, The Treatment is an enjoyable book which should appeal to YA fans.
