Late yesterday, Suzanne Young, author of The Program series, released the cover for her upcoming book The Remedy through her blog. She also gave an exclusive first look through MTV talking about the cover and the book. She describes it as, “It’s a little tougher, gritter, maybe even sexier.”
The Remedy is a prequel for The Program series that will follow new characters as it leads up to the suicide epidemic. Along with the cover, she also released the synopsis of the story and what we can expect.
Quinlan McKee is a closer, a person hired to play the short-term role of a deceased loved one in order to give their family closure. She’s not an exact copy, of course, but she wears the dead person’s 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. Quinn is deft at recreating herself, but sometimes she confuses her own past with those of the people she’s portrayed.
When she’s given her longest assignment yet, playing the role of Catalina Barnes, Quinn begins to bond with Isaac, 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 certainly looks like an interesting story as we get new characters in the same world that we came to know in The Program. Hopefully, this one can explain how the epidemic started and explain more about The Program.
The Remedy is set to come out April 21st 2015 and you can add the book to your Goodreads shelf by going here.
