Mit dem Kinostart der 'Hunger Games' wird das Genre der 'Dystopie' gewiss noch viele neue Leser begeistern. Hier nun der erste Teil der Serie.
Starters is the first in a high-concept, futuristic thriller, two-book series by newcomer Lissa Price - a tremendous bestselling author in the making.
Callie lost her parents when the genocide spore wiped out everyone except the very young and very old. Now, Callie and her brother are on the run. Hope comes in the form of the Body Bank, where teens are hired to rent their bodies to seniors - known as enders - to be young again. But Callie's neurochipmalfunctions and she wakes up in her rich renter's body; living in her mansion, driving her cars. It's like a fairy-tale. . . until Callie uncovers the Body Bank's horrible plan.
Like Scott Westerfeld's 'Uglies' and Suzanne Collins' 'The Hunger Games', 'Starters' is a total thrill ride, a character-driven pulse-pounding novel that will be one of the most talked about books for teens.
The beginning of a two-book series.
