16-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. She and her little brother must go on the run, living as squatters, fighting off unclaimed renegades who would kill for a cookie. Hope comes in the form of the Body Bank run by a mysterious figure, known only as The Old Man. The Body Bank allows teenagers to rent out their bodies to 'Enders' - the elderly members of society - who want to be young again. But Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party in her body. She intends to commit murder . . .
when i read this book i could not put it down. it was so intense and deep. it was about a girl's fight of freedom for life and the length's a young girl would go to protect her brother. even if it means being a whole different person... literally!
The place seemed like something out of a nightmare, people too friendly to be sincere, a deal too good to be true and all for the low price of her body to rent out to the highest bidder. Three rentals and it would be over, she would sleep through the whole thing and all in the blink of an eye she would have her body back, her life back and a large sum of cash for her trouble.
The cash was the only reason she ever considered it in the first place. With her little brother all she has left in the world she had to protect him, and a life on the streets was doing nothing for his health. But when she wakes to find herself living a life that is not her own, with cash in one hand and a gun in the other, she uncovers the beginnings of a murderous plot, but is she able to hold on to her body long enough to stop the murder and save herself.
Starters are treated as second class citizens in this new post war world. With no legal rights many starters are forced to live on the streets, or worse they end up in prisons. In a world that exploits, captures and brutalizes its children, where lives are brought and sold and no one is who they seem, this dystopian story makes you wonder at the possibilities, and give you nightmares of a world gone wrong.
