Starters - Lissa Price More of my reviews at The Cozy Reading Corner

I had heard a lot of good things about Starters, so of course, I had to find out for myself! And let me tell you, the praises everyone are singing are completely true! This book was awesome! The story takes place after this nuclear war has killed off everyone between twenty and sixty. So the only people left are Elders (those over sixty) and their grandchildren and Starters (the young unclaimed minors). The main character is Callie and she is a Starter. She has no living relatives except her younger brother, Tyler, who is sick. Callie, Tyler, and their friend Michael live on the streets. They need money to get water, food, a home, and medical assistance for Tyler. It is illegal for minors to work, therefore Callie ends up going to this place called Prime Destinations where she will get paid to rent her body. This means that an Elder will be able to "take over" her body for a few days in order to relive the days of being a teenager. Callie agrees to do it for Tyler's sake. But things don't go exactly as planned..... This is when the adventure really starts! New friends and enemies were made and there was romance blooming. Lissa Price completely shocked me there at the end and I have some new suspicions that will hopefully be revealed in the sequel (which I am definitely looking forward to). Overall, I thought Starters was a fantastic read that I totally recommend! <3
