Candor by Pam Cachorz

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.

Sci-fi? Brainwashing? Messages? Fighting back teens? Romantical complications? Right up my alley. Like right up. As in wooow. I want this book. :D And I find the cover very striking. Not my favourite ever, but the orange is interesting. Plus the guy's hot. And probably blonde. I'm a sucker for blondes. :P

To find out more about Candor and Pam Bachorz, you can go to the author's website. There's even a quiz to see how brainwashed you are! Although the submit button isn't working for me... better luck for others maybe?

And because I didn't know what candor meant (gaaah. Embarassed. XD) I dictionary.comed it:

can⋅dor 
–noun
1.
the state or quality of being frank, open, and sincere in speech or expression; candidness: The candor of the speech impressed the audience.
2.
freedom from bias; fairness; impartiality: to consider an issue with candor.


Makes sense! Candor comes out September 22, 2009.

  3. Sounds good, though it does remind me a bit of The Giver by Lois Lowry. Still, I'll definately be reading it when it comes out.
