A Satisfying Conclusion--no spoilers

I first discovered Suzanne Young's book THE PROGRAM several years ago. It touched a nerve for very personal reasons and made me want more of the story. THE COMPLICATION is the 6th and final book in the series. When I rate a book, I rate it based on a few things and these are the reasons I have give the book 5 stars.

The first thing I look for is whether or not the story is a good one--did it keep me interested?, did it keep me wanting to find out more?, was I invested in the characters? Yes on all of these. Because I have read the other 5 books in the series, the world of The Program was very familiar and this book in particular brought back many of the characters I have grown to love and some that I have loved to hate. The characters are flawed and filled with self doubt but are also badass.

Another thing I look for is whether or not the book makes me think. There were so many times in this book that I thought about the choices that a character had made. What would I have done? Some of the choices were unethical and yet as a parent I really had to think about how I would have reacted in the same situation.

This is a YA title and I am not the target audience but I am a huge YA fan--I would have loved to have a series like this to read as a teen. It is exciting, thought provoking, and has a great if somewhat dark sense of humor.

THE COMPLICATION is the perfect end to the series in that it tied up all the loose ends and gave each character closure (in one way or another).

A word for parents: YA is a great way to talk to your kids. My daughter and I read the original PROGRAM book together years ago and it opened up a continuing dialog about suicide and other difficult subjects.
