Book Talk & Giveaway: STARTERS by Lissa Price

My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won't find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could've been better or what worked or didn't work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it's here I probably think it won't injure your brain if you read it.

Life isn't easy after the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. Teens everywhere have to take care of their younger siblings, and Callie hasn't had the best of luck so far. Continuously on the run from other squatters who are just as desperate as she is, Callie is desperate for an out - any way to offer a better life to her little brother Tyler.

Prime Destinations is a disturbing new business in Beverly Hills. For an exorbitant price the elderly - called Enders - can rent the bodies of teens. A neurotic implanted in the teens - Starters - brains gives the Enders complete control of the teens' bodies. But the pay is good and Callie is desperate.

When Callie's neurochip malfunctions she wakes up living the life of her renter - and discovers that the woman who is inhabiting her body isn't just looking to have a good time. She's plotting a murder.
