Candor by Pam Bachorz
Out: September 2009
(no cover yet)
Summary: Oscar Banks has everything under control. In a town where his father brainwashes everyone, he's found a way to secretly fight the subliminal Messages. He's got them all fooled: Oscar's the top student and the best-behaved teen in town. Nobody knows he's made his own Messages to deprogram his brain. Oscar has even found a way to get rich. For a hefty price, he helps new kids escape Candor, Florida before they're transformed into cookie-cutter teens. But then Nia Silva moves to Candor, and Oscar's carefully-controlled world crumbles.
My Thoughts: Doesn't this just sound amazing? It's a very different idea for a Young Adult novel. I love that though, because sometimes you just want to read something that is completely different from a lot of other books being released. This definitely sounds like one of those titles! I can't wait until it's released. I wonder what the cover will look like...
On Pam's website, she has a playlist of songs that she listened to while writing Candor. I went through a few of them and decided it would be fun to post one of the songs here so everyone else can enjoy.I really really liked this one. The video is for Blair from Gossip Girls (fan-made) so you can watch it if you want, but the song is the main part of course!
