Starters by Lissa Price, 336 pages, read by Nikki, on 09/07/2012

Callie and her little brother Tyler have lost their parents to the war that wiped out everybody between the ages of 20-60 years old. Callie and Tyler go on the run living in abandoned buildings, hiding from marshals and unfriendlies. Callie has no choice but to go to Prime Destinations, a place where young minors can rent their bodies to Enders (older generation) for a certain amount of time for a large amount of money. Once Callie agrees to become a donor, her neurochip in her head that connects the Ender to her body malfunctions and she finds herself living the Renter’s life. Living in a mansion, driving nice cars, and even dating the Senators grandson. But Callie soon learns that her Renter has a plan to kill.

I decided to read this book because it was suppose to be the next best thing to the Hunger Games. I really enjoyed this book, although not nearly as much as the Hunger Games. It had some surprising twists to the story. But this book was almost to science fiction for me. Still, I enjoyed it and finished it quickly. Good read.
