Publisher's Summary

Can Sloane and James survive the lies and secrets surrounding them, or will The Program claim them in the end? Find out in this sequel to The Program, which Publishers Weekly called "chilling and suspenseful".

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?

    "Tedious"

    The premise was interesting. The book could have been half the length. Not what I expected.

    "I like the relationship development"

    I like the relationship development we got. James is always a fun character and it's good we got more of him here.

    I enjoyed the first half of the book but the second half of the book felt too much like the first book.

    I don't like that the ending felt too easy and too passive. It made sense but it still felt too easy.

    "If you liked the first book"
    Where does The Treatment rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Below mediocre.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Till the end


    Any additional comments?

    If you liked the first book, you should definately take this one too.

    "Just as good as the first book! total cliff hanger"
    Would you listen to The Treatment again? Why?

    Yes. I absolutely loved the characters and the surprises they faced along the way. I definitely found myself on the edge of my seat multiple times.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Treatment?

    SPOILER: When sloan is trying to escape at the end.


    What about Joy Osmanski’s performance did you like?

    She had great voices for each character and she read with excitement! It was all at a good pace too.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes! Some parts I was shocked and kind of worried how the characters were going to end up. I also want to meet a guy like James.. he's perfect!


    Any additional comments?

    Im glad that this book was just as good as the first one. It held true to the characters and the fast pace that the first book had.

    "Good closure to the story line"

    It was a good closure to the story line. It brought things to a nice wrap up. I didn't feel rushed. I didn't get too bogged down. It flowed from character to character in a natural way. It leaves room for other stories but the reader need not read them if they don't want to as this really wrapped up well. I would not recommend this book as a stand alone because you need to understand the world of the novel to get it.

    I found myself wondering about the premise of course. Suicidal concerns with young people around the world. Being a teen is filled with so much wandering and thinking and angsting that I could see where it might seem like an epidemic. There was never an attempt to explain the problem or science the problem which I personally appreciated. My take is that it would have been ridiculous. So I accepted the premise and enjoyed the book. If you are someone who has this need for everything to be logical then I'd suggest skipping this series. Logical it ain't.

    "Good book!"

    Read the first (The Program) and thought it was such an interesting idea and story line. Really enjoyed the second!

    "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. :(
