Starters by Lissa Price, 336 pages, read by Leslie, on 06/28/2013

Starters (Starters and Enders, #1)

To support herself and her younger brother in a future Beverly Hills, sixteen-year-old Callie hires her body out to seniors who want to experience being young again, and she lives a fairy-tale life until she learns that her body will commit murder, unless her mind can stop it.

To think that old people could be so callous in the future is just unimaginable to me but when you have a lot of money I guess anything is possible.  A very good story, futuristic with mystery and murder thrown in, as well as the usual political intrigue.  I thought the ending was nice, it tied everything together, while leaving a way for the next one in the series.  I hope our future never turns out like this!
