Changing Hands presents two young adult authors, Aprilynne Pike discusses her novel, Sleep No More and Suzanne Young presents The Treatment.
In Aprilynne Pike's href="/work/14511524">Sleep No More, Charlotte Westing has a gift. She is an Oracle and has the ability to tell the future. But it doesn't do her much good. Instead of using their miraculous power, modern-day Oracles are told to fight their visions--to refrain from interfering. And Charlotte knows the price of breaking the rules. She sees it every day in her wheelchair-bound mother and the absence of her father. But when a premonition of a classmate's death is too strong for her to ignore, Charlotte is forced to make an impossible decision: continue following the rules or risk everything--even her sanity--to stop the serial killer who is stalking her town.
In Suzanne Young's The Treatment, the sequel to The Program, Sloane and James are on the run after barely surviving the suicide epidemic and The Program isn't ready to let them go. Escaping with a group of troubled rebels, they will have to figure out who they can trust, and how to take down The Program. But for as far as they've come, there's still a lot they can't remember. The key to unlocking their past lies with The Treatment--a pill that can bring back forgotten memories, but at a high cost. Ultimately when the stakes are at their highest, can Sloane and James survive the many lies and secrets surrounding them, or will The Program claim them in the end?
