The story:


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. . .

The view of a book addict:

So this is the second time I started this book, the first time I just read one chapter and I just got a book I really wanted to read. So I decided to put this book aside because it didn’t grip me right away.

So after reading a lot of other books I decided to pick this one up again and I’m glad I did. Although the story really had to  grow on me in the end I just couldn’t stop reading. It became a thrilling and scary story.

The characters of the story really grew on me and I think the fact that this book had to win me over made it one of the best books I’ve read this year.

The verdict of a book addict:

I can honestly say that I wasn’t a fan at first but this story really won me over and now I can’t wait to read the second one!
