Giveaway: The Program by Suzanne Young (US only)

 

by Suzanne Young
ISBN: 9781442445802
Release Date: April 30, 2013
 
Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.
 
Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in. And The Program is coming for them.

This book has an amazing premise, and I'm really looking forward to reading it.

Having never experienced clinical depression, it's really hard for me to answer the question of whether I'd rather keep my emotions or become a "blank slate" with neither positive nor negative feelings. Friends of mine who have suffered from depression--and one who took his own life--would answer, and have answered, very differently from me.

I would definitely rather have my emotions. I am a very emotional person and I would not trade it for the world. It is what makes me so passionate about what I do.

I will keep my emotions, because when you are sad and something makes you suddenly happy, it´s even more happier because you were sad

There are some days I seriously consider numbing everything out, but, no. I wouldn't give up my emotions if I could. Life would be too boring, otherwise.

On bad days I might be tempted to give them up, but I would never really go that far.

I think I would rather be in a "blank state". It sounds a little harsh, but that's what I would rather do.

Gosh, I think I'd rather have a blank slate. I know, it is what defines me, but I couldn't handle keeping my emotions if it were overun with depressed feelings.

I would rather keep my emotions. Yes, having to deal with depressing and sad emotions can be tedious, but to get rid of the bad feelings the good would have to follow. I don't want to lose out on the good feelings.

There are times when I feel as if I am a blank slate because I feel numb, and no, I would much rather keep my emotions. Happiness is not possible without also experiencing sadness at times. And love can't exist without pain. Sometimes it is hard, but it is so much better to be able to feel, otherwise you wouldn't even really feel alive.

On another note, this is my #1 most anticipated book of 2013, so I'll keep my fingers crossed!!!
