How do you go back to a life you can’t remember? Find out in this follow up to the New York Times bestselling The Program and The Treatment.
Tatum Masterson never went through The Program. She never had her memory stripped, never had to fight to remain herself. But when Weston, her longtime boyfriend and love of her life, was taken by handlers, she hoped he’d remember her somehow—that their love would be strong enough.
Like all returners, Weston came back a blank canvas. The years he and Tatum spent together were forgotten, as well as the week when he mysteriously disappeared before The Program came for him.
Regardless of his memory loss, Tatum fights to get Weston to remember her. And just as they start to build a new love, they hear about the Adjustment—a new therapy that implants memories from a donor. Despite the risks, Tatum and Weston agree to go through the process. Tatum donates her memories from their time together.
But the problem with memories is that they are all a matter of perspective. So although Weston can now remember dating Tatum, his emotions don’t match the experiences. And this discrepancy is slowly starting to unravel him, worse than anything The Program could have done.
And as the truth of their life together becomes clear, Tatum will have to decide if she loves Weston enough to let him go, or to continue to live the lie they’d build together.
Prepare for your Adjustment.
The Program is one of those rare series, that not only gets better as it goes, but one that will capture your interest from the very first page.
It is unique, horrifying, and completely believable in almost all aspects of design. It is one that can be felt and imagined and that is what makes it so darn good and so addicting.
It is a series that captured my love for it after the first book and one that has only grown as the series has progressed and evolved. It truly is one of a kind and this latest installment might very well be my favorite yet.
For fans of the series, we know that the stakes have never been higher and the danger more real. Even though so much has happened and so much has changed for the better, there is still so much more bad out there. There are still conspiracies and dangers lurking around every corner and The Adjustment just proves that just when you think it is safe to go back into the waters, a shark jumps out and grabs you.
This was an action packed adventure that pulled at the heart strings and left me reeling and wanting more. It amazes me how far Young has come with this series and with the ending the way it was, how much is still left to reveal and tell.
I can't not wait for more. This series continues to stun and leave me breathless and most of all, leaves me craving more.
