Publisher Comments:

Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, are 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 son.

     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. . . .

Review:

"In this audio edition of Price's dystopian fantasy, in an effort to save her ailing brother and acquire some much needed money, young Callie — who lost her parents during the Spore Wars — allows her body to be used as a shell by senior citizens wanting to be young again. As a shell in a disease-ravaged world, Callie makes two terrible discoveries: that shells are dying and that orphans are being forced to serve as permanent shells. Rebecca Lowman provides well-paced, clear narration and captures the spirit of the novel's young protagonist. The voices Lowman lends to male characters are distinct and appropriate, but many of her female characters sound melodramatic. Ages 12 — up. A Delacorte hardcover."
