WoW Pick of the Week



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.



This next one is actually a full length prequel to the Treatment series by Suzanne Young which I absolutely loved. Thankfully I have an e-ARC of this so I will get to read it soon but still, I am super excited for it and am hoping I will love it every bit as much as I have its predecessors.

Have you tried this series yet? What did you think about it?




Release Date: April 21, 2015
Series: Prequel to the Treatment Series

Book Description:

In a world before The Program…

Quinlan McKee is a closer. Since the age of seven, Quinn has held the responsibility of providing closure to grieving families with a special skill—she can “become” anyone.

Recommended by grief counselors, Quinn is hired by families to take on the short-term role of a deceased loved one between the ages of fifteen and twenty. She’s not an exact copy, of course, but she wears their clothes and changes her hair, studies them through pictures and videos, and soon, Quinn can act like them, smell like them, and be them for all intents and purposes. But to do her job successfully, she can’t get attached.


Now seventeen, Quinn is deft at recreating herself, sometimes confusing her own past with those of the people she’s portrayed. When she’s given her longest assignment, playing the role of Catalina Barnes, Quinn begins to bond with the deceased girl’s boyfriend. But that’s only the beginning of the complications, especially when Quinn finds out the truth about Catalina’s death. And the epidemic it could start.

  6. I tried a bit of The Program (the first book, I think?) but it was just hard for me to truly appreciate it because I couldn't connect to the characters. Maybe the prequel will be able to give me that backstory and connection needed? I'll try it out when it's out :)
