In Sloane’s world, true feelings are forbidden, teen suicide is an epidemic, and the only solution is The Program. 

Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories. 

Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in. And The Program is coming for them.

The Program was unlike any other dystopian books that I read, in the past few years that I began reading books like this. This one was based on teen depression | Suicide. Even if this was a fantasy book, I think there parts that someone of people could relate too, the depression and the suicide especially after you lost someone who was close to you. Not just that, but also the way that it was written, you could actually imagine how they must been feeling at that moment. I did wonder if there was a reason beside that they thought they were sick, of why they took their memories in Program away. I understand of taking the bad memories, to help them to move on. But all of the memories, I keep on wondering if there was a reason behind it. The Program was beautifully written, with so much emotion. 

Sloane, James, Realm : I loved the relationship that Sloane and James had from the beginning. I could tell the way James was around her, trying to protect her and making sure that she wouldn’t be taken in program, he loved her. Despite what Doctor at the program said, I knew that he loved her. I believe that two of them lasted that long, because of their love. I think if Miller hasn’t committed Suicide they might lasted longer, he was their breaking point, there was only so much that one person can handle. Because of their past, after bother of them returned I think that’s why they reconnected, fell in love with each other all over again. I was hoping that they would or that at least one of them would remember the other, what they had. Now Realm, I had a feeling that something was off about him from start. He was nice to her too fast. Once I found he was working for The Program, I was angry and I wondered if all this time he was using her. As book progressed, I could tell that he loved her. That maybe during his mission, he ended up falling in love with her. 

The Ending, it made me wonder who Alison was. Why Realm called her Sloane? Did she look like her? Or is there something else. I am also curious if Sloane and James will be able to escape the program? Or if they get caught and forced back once more. It’s filled with emotion, drama , romance and so much more. A series I know that I am going to love.
