In a world ravaged by war and genocide, becoming someone else is now possible. Sixteen-year-old Callie discovers the Body Bank where teens rent their bodies to seniors who want to be young again.

It’s a fairy-tale new life, until she discovers her renter’s deadly plan.

Why I can't wait?
This concept reminds me a little of the show Dollhouse, which I absolutely love. People purchase or rent someone for a purpose or experience, and Starters sounds like a more permanent version. I think this plus the dystopian element will be amazing. I can't wait to see what Lissa Price has in store!


  1. Wow! When I first saw the cover I was a little freaked out. But then as I stared at it, I couldn't help but wonder what this book is about. I have never heard of it before. It sounds really really good. Awesome pick!

    My WoW

  2. Wow, I hadn't heard of this book before but I love the concept! I hope it's as amazing as it sounds!
