The Program by Suzanne Young


Kindle   Nook   Kobo

Ugh, I made myself finish this one.  I’m going to give it one star and hope it doesn’t make the Gateway list, I do not  want to buy it.  The Program made me uncomfortable and not in a thought provoking way, but an eye-rolling way. Everyone feels like a stereotype.  Sloane is the whiny protagonist, Lacy is the slutty best friend.  James is the”bad boy” boyfriend.  Realm is the insider manipulator. Mom and Dad are just caricatures.  I kept waiting for the government conspiracy theory, and wasn’t disappointed to find may be coming in the sequel, as they are escaping to the “rebels.”  Sigh.
