Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie’s only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man.

He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie’s head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator’s grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations’ plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined. . . .

I absolutely loved this book.  It was right up my alley, and something different.  Lissa Price creates a world full of destruction.  Even through everything that is wrong with the world, Callie does everything she can to try to keep her brother protected and healthy.
Each character has their own agenda, but it’s easy to connect with them.  I love Callie’s determination in protecting those she loves.  Tyler is the cutest, and strongest, little boy I think I’ve ever seen in a book.
There are a few twists in the story that I didn’t see coming at all.  Nothing I guessed was what happened.  The last twist totally toyed with my emotions.  I was hooked from the very beginning of this book and couldn’t put it down.  I’m looking forward to the second installment Enders, coming out this winter.  I highly recommend this novel if you are looking for something action packed and something new in the dystopian world.
