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? 

Ever since I first read THE PROGRAM back in 2014, I was eager to see what would happen to James, Realm and Sloane after. If they would be able to get away from Program, if they could put an end to it. I loved the first book, but that book was nothing compared to THE TREATMENT . Usually I tend enjoy the first book in series more than the second, but in this case, it was the other way around. It could be just me, however I had this feeling that THE TREATMENT had a lot more going on, more action, more anticipation that kept my devotion till the end. It had this edge to the book, at the end of each chapter that it was impossible to put down, due to cliffhanger that seemed to come towards end of the chapter. One of reasons that I read the novel in one day because I couldn’t get enough of the story. I was hooked and knew that there was no way that I would be able to put it away, not till I reached the end anyways. It reminded me why I loved this series this much to begin with.

James and Sloane, come on how can you not love those two? I loved them since the beginning of series, but in this book, I feel in love with them. Despite them being through the program, having their memories wiped clean and they still found their way to each other in end. James is type of guy that almost every girl dreams about. I loved how he always seemed to want to take care of Sloane, looked out for her. Not once did he give up on her, despite his jealousy over her and Realm’s friendship. I like Realm, at least parts of him but after reading this, I know that it’s James that Sloane belongs with. It had always been James. I loved the scenes between the two of them. Now that The Program had been shut down, I am curious what will happen with everyone after.

THE TREATMENT was a heartfelt, gripping story. Everything that I love about books, the book that will keep you on edge of your seat from the begging, to the end. I am still thinking about the story and the characters. A book that I would give more than five stars if I could. Beautiful. Engaging.
