Today we’re giving away two different sets of hot new releases!
In the dystopian novel Starters, a desperate Callie signs up with Prime Destinations, a service that arranges for wealthy clients to “rent” her young body and live vicariously through her. But the renters are creepy and Callie just doesn’t know who she can trust. The sequel Enders is out tomorrow, and it’s a race against the clock as Callie tries to remove the chip implanted in her body that allows the Enders to control her actions. I thought the first book was pretty fun, so it should be interesting to see how the story wraps up in the sequel.
What do you think of the redesigned covers, by the way? I liked the original Starters artwork, but it might’ve made Callie look a little younger than she actually is.
“The Start-Up” interesting consists of three serialized novellas, a concept that seems to be popping up more and more. The Social Code introduces us to twins Adam and Amelia, who use their smarts to launch a new tech company based around an iPhone app that controls all your electronics. In The Next Big Thing, they have to deal with the complications of Silicon Valley and each other as they try to get ahead. With technology and young entrepreneurs and inventors on the rise, it’s no wonder that we’re starting to see more books about these subjects. Since these protagonists are 18, this series skews a little on the older side of YA, too.
