Waiting On Wednesday: Candor

Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Candor by Pam Bachorz

* Published by: EgmontUSA
* Format: Hardcover
* Release Date:
September 22nd, 2009 (US)
* On Amazon: here.

From the author's site:
...in a town where his father brainwashes everyone, Oscar Banks has found a way to secretly fight the subliminal Messages that turn even the most troubled kids into model citizens. On the outside, he's the perfect Candor teen, and no one knows that he's built an entire business around helping new kids escape before the Messages take hold. But then Nia Silva moves to town, and Oscar thinks she's perfect exactly the way she is. Soon he must make a choice: let Nia be lost to the brainwashing, or help her stay special and risk himself in the process.

This sounds brilliant, and I can't wait to find out if Oscar can save Nia. I also love the cover, and the whole idea of brainwashed teens.

This sounds so good. The idea of brainwashed teens is kinda scary!

Are you going to be jealous that I have an ARC of this sitting on my nightstand? If you don't win Sharon's contest, I'll probably do a giveaway for my copy after I read it.

This looks amazing! I love the guy on the cover. Can I have a cover crush? He reminds me a bit of Alex Pettyfer.
