Can one girl take on so many identities without losing her own? Find out in this riveting companion to The Program and the New York Times bestselling The Treatment.
In a world before The Program…
Quinlan McKee is a closer. Since the age of seven, Quinn has held the responsibility of providing closure to grieving families with a special skill—she can “become” anyone.
Recommended by grief counselors, Quinn is hired by families to take on the short-term role of a deceased loved one between the ages of fifteen and twenty. She’s not an exact copy, of course, but she wears their clothes and changes her hair, studies them through pictures and videos, and soon, Quinn can act like them, smell like them, and be them for all intents and purposes. But to do her job successfully, she can’t get attached.
Now seventeen, Quinn is deft at recreating herself, sometimes confusing her own past with those of the people she’s portrayed. When she’s given her longest assignment, playing the role of Catalina Barnes, Quinn begins to bond with the deceased girl’s boyfriend. But that’s only the beginning of the complications, especially when Quinn finds out the truth about Catalina’s death. And the epidemic it could start.
This book was great! Even though I wouldn't give this book 5 stars, I highly recommend you read it. This book is pacted with friendship, trust, and mysteries that kept me hooked through the very end. The characters were great and I felt an emotional attachment to all of them especially the narrator Quinn. You begin to understand where Quin feelings are coming from and feel bad for her that she was forced into this lifestyle. The only reason I gave it 4 stars because the ending got me a bit confused. I still have plenty of questions roaming in my mind😊😊 but you should definitely read this book if ur looking for something that is full of suprises and mysteries and will keep you reading till the very end!
please read this book! this is easily one of the best books i have ever read (right behind The Program books of course) this book was written brilliantly. it keeps you thinking and it is such a great and at some points heartbreaking story that makes you NEED to read the next book that isn't supposed to come out until next year!
i finished this book a while ago and i'm just impatiently waiting for the next one to come out!
it's a great book and it's really worth the read!
