Review: Starters

By: Lissa Price
Publisher: Delacortie Press
Pages: 368
Release Date: March 13, 2012

Goodreads Synopsis:


Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie's only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man. 

He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie's head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator's grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations' plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined. . . .

My Thoughts:

I <3 Dystopians.  I can not get enough of them.  I think they will never get old, and this book  is one of the reasons.  This book was a very fresh take on dystopians.  It showed that you not only need a different world, but you need a different culture as well.

You meet Callie.  She is a starter.  In this world there are Starters and there are Enders.  The Enders usually live to 100 years old or long and they usually have a lot of money.  So they pay a company to get Starters to come in and rent their body so that they can live a little.  I mean, how genius is that! It sounded amazing when I heard about the book and then I was recommended the book by a fellow blogger.  (Jacinda@thereadinghousewives)  And boy am I glad that I read this book.  I seriously can not wait to read the next book, Enders.  It comes out this December!!!! :) I will be counting down the days!

If you want to read a book that is amazing and keeps you on your toes, this is defiantly a book for  you!  I am so happy that I gave this book a chance.  This book had everything that I think a book should have!  It was a page turner, it had action, and suspense.  I think that those are must haves for a good dystopian.  And Lissa Price did just that.

My Rating:

I am giving this book 5 out 5 stars!
