    These days it is hard to write a dystopian YA and have it stand out. Starters did not have that problem; it was impressive from start to finish.In the first few pages, we are immersed in the dangerous world where Callie, the protagonist of the book, lives. There has been a horrible war where the US has fell victim to a terrible biological attack, where only the elderly and young have been vaccinated. Unsurprisingly, this leaves the young to fend for themselves. Callie is forced to make some toug [...]

    corrected for spelling error (that was nicely pointed out to me thank you!!)I had issues with this book. Sometimes I can get into the story, the characters, and overlook the issues with the world building. This was not one of them. I tried. I really did. But yes, it is another review full of ???????THE WARWhy was there a war? What kind of spores were put in the missiles? What kind of missiles were used? It couldn’t be one with an explosive head since spores are vulnerable to heat and explosion [...]

    2.5 starsThe description of Starters immediately snagged my attention: teenage donor bodies, elderly renters, a vaguely sinister business commercialising on desperation, poverty and the allure of eternal youth for hire. I think it’s a strong idea and ripe for ethical discussion, in this case examined through the lens of a post-apocalyptic/dystopian world where the fallout from biological (I assume) warfare has rendered life precious, and youth a commodity. The balance of power has been drastic [...]

    First I have to say how surprised I was to see this cover in real life. It's such a reflective shiny silver/white that you can see yourself in it. I mean look at it -I love it! Inside this flashy cover, Lissa Price has written a fun, original dystopian that reminded me a bit of The Host (one of my favorite books ever), and even though the world itself could use more details, the story is highly entertaining.After a war that only left children and seniors alive, Callie, orphaned, has decided to d [...]

    This was pretty entertaining, if a bit sketchy on some of the details. Still, there's a very interesting twist at the end that I didn't see coming! And I will definitely be reading the sequel. Review to come.

    I usually hate being wrong about a book, but right now, I'm ecstatic. Given the dystopia-craze surrounding us, I was afraid this book wouldn't live up to my expectations, so I lowered them. But after reading just a few pages, I knew I would absolutely love Starters.In a genre that has become so popular in the last couple of years, it's only natural that some topics and tropes will be recycled and "transformed", but in the end we have the same of everything. In my opinion, Starters kicks its fell [...]

    Have you ever noticed how much easier it is to harsh on a book you don't like than it is to write something nice about one you love?I'm not even sure where to start with this one. I'm a third of the way through and so far, I love it! Have to get back and finish it.Update:I'm done and feeling a bit deflated. This book was so good, so exciting, so fun, that once I started turning the pages of the last few chapters I made myself slow down, I tried to really savor each moment, but there was so much [...]

    Starters July 7thThis book was amazing! I haven't given 5 stars in quite some time. I loved how the author wrote the voices of the characters. I really liked that she wasn’t annoying and that she had something to fight for. But its’ really weird that she had to sell herself to an Ender. And that’s where the story begins. Callie and her brother live on the streets ever since the Spores wiped out every adult. The children and elderly were vaccinate, since they were the most vulnerable but en [...]

    What if you could rent your body -- basically go to sleep for a day or a week, while another person's consciousness "lived" inside of your body, skiing, skydiving, or skipping through fields -- for big, big bucks? No way, right? What a creepy thoughtWell, what if your parents were dead and your little brother was sick really, really sick, and the only way to save him was go on into Prime Destinations and rent yourself out to a stranger?That's the basic premise behind Lissa Price's fantastic YA t [...]

    During the Spore Wars, genocide spores killed every person between twenty and sixty years of age, thus reducing the population to Starters and Enders, those who were once most vulnerable. Since Callie and her baby brother Tyler have no living grandparents or any other family older than sixty, they are now unclaimed and squatting in a ruined building, together with many others. The only way for an unclaimed teen to earn some money is to rent their body for a month or more to an Elder through a co [...]

    I just read the chapter sampler and am completely engaged in the story. Actually, the first two or three lines in chapter 1 and I was hooked. The protagonist is a girl caught in a difficult situation and scrambling to save what family she has. She's doing it in a completely hostile world, with a few spectacular twists. What elevates this story is its take on the generation gap (and what a gap it is) and on the importance of staying compassionate in a world that has forgotten that children are ou [...]

    “First Sara, then Redmond. Who else was going to suffer because of me before this was over?”3 1/2 stars I've complained a lot about dystopian books, but I feel like my complaints are understandable. It's an overpopulated genre with most books riding off of The Hunger Games and eventually, they all start to sound the same. With each new dystopian novel, they feel more and more like copies of each other and really, can we just not have another special girl single handedly taking on an evil gov [...]

    Straight up, you can’t trust the elderly, this is an important life lesson I learned from Lissa Price’s exciting debut Starters. Like, I hate to compare books, but I feel like Starters might be 2012′s Divergent. The two books aren’t alike plot wise, but they both have that up all night quality. I mean, I read Starters mostly during the week and was ITCHING to get out of work so I could read more of it.Read the rest of my review here

    Really looking forward to this book. Think it will be a real page turner!!A Very Striking Book Cover!!Update- Was not disappointed after having read this terrific novel. Kept me captivated from start to finish and was difficult to put down. Full of interesting twists and turns with a very surprising ending that has me highly anticipating Enders, the second book in the series. Definitely recommended!!

    Starters by Lissa Price is really, really good! WOW! You will meet Callie, a young girl whose parents are dead, and her 7-yr.-old brother, Tyler, is very sick. Her only hope to get money is to rent her body out to old people to use. She really doesn't want to do it but gives in to help her brother. Everything goes fine at first, but then takes a turn for the worse! I devoured this book in just two days; kept those pages turning to see what would happen next. Can't wait for the second book to com [...]

    Firstly, I don’t know how to begin this review. I’m not even sure if this review can justify this amazing story of Starters. Starters is a story you really don’t read every day. It is a story like no other. I certainly did not expect that this book left me no choice but to devour it entirely in just a minimum amount of time.The world of Starters was almost perfectly written. It was very well thought out. Price was creative enough to ever think a future more challenging, more engaging, more [...]

    I'm counting down the days until the official book release comes. I don't often read books for fun except for physical therapy textbooks or journal articles, or quality books like Harry Potter, but this one I wanted to see the rest of the book (I am so fortunate to get my hands on the chapter sampler). Right away on the first page, there were so many intriguing information that kept me turning the pages. People are living far longer than the current period. There is snazzy technology described t [...]

    When I read the chapter sampler of Starters, I was blown away. Starters is high concept, high octane. The voice of the main character (Callie) grabs you from the first sentence. Reading it reminded me of how I felt when I read Hunger Games: totally entranced and anxious for the next page and the next and the next. I know what all my reader friends are going to get for their birthdays next year. A copy of Starters. Starters begins with a brilliant premise, which is that there are young people (st [...]

    I was given the ARC of STARTERS at the New York SCBWI Conference and I can't tell you what a lucky break that was for me. I am so excited to have gotten an early peek at this debut novel. My only complaint? Now I have to wait, for what is going to seem like forever, until I can read ENDERS and find out what happens after all those cliff hangers? *growls at Lissa Price* Why do I love this book? Starters has amazing characters, a very unique setting and a super exciting plot. But the best part is [...]

    What a great YA SciFi novel! I really like the idea of the story, and the book was very well-written. Will be reading Enders soon, realy curious to that!I've read this in one day, a whole lazy Sunday. Lovely, this is what Sundays are supposed to be made of :)

    Literary Ames Against GR Censorship
    Super strong opening chapters with a premise similar to TV’s Dollhouse which although interesting, threw up more questions than answers.Starters shines the spotlight on a section of society which is sometimes overlooked or given the least respect but which will in future be the most powerful: the old. One day there will be fewer young people to support the ever-increasing number of elderly citizens, and here we can see how things could change in their favour.Starters are under 19 years of age, [...]

    I had mixed feelings about this book. I liked the characters but I wasn't attached to them. The writing style was smooth and nice. Some of the characters thoughts or actions did not make sense. The plot was very different from the usual books I read. This book is really different and for some reason, it is almost similar to the Host. After the Spore War, when Callie was younger, her parents died. Callie, her brother Tyler, and her friend Micheal have to find a way to survive on the streets. Call [...]

    Wow! So loved the premise of this book! Creepy and fantastic. My favorite part was the end when she learnedHa you thought I was gonna share a spoiler. Nope. But still loved the end! Who knew grandmas and grandpas could be so evil! There was some really cool forward thinking technology in here. If you didn't notice it skim through it again because it was really brilliant.

    Overdramatics
    Den Schreibstil von Lissa Price finde ich für dieses Jugendbuch wirklich passend. Es lässt sich schnell und flüssig lesen und enthält auch nicht zuviele abgehobene Science Fiction Begriffe, welche den Lesefluss behindert hätten.Als großer Fan von Dystopien finde ich die Grundidee von Starters wirklich toll. Die Thematik Surrogates, also von Körpern als Leihgabe, fand ich schon immer super interessant. Ich finde auch, dass die Autorin das Thema echt gut umgesetzt und erläutert hat, sodass [...]

    Zur AufmachungDer Titel wurde glücklicherweise von der Originalversion übernommen und passt perfekt zum Buch. Das deutsche Cover sieht schon ein bisschen unheimlich aus, aber das ist kein Vergleich zum Original! Ich persönlich mag beide Cover sehr gerne.Zum BuchNie im Leben hätte ich erwartet, dass dieses Buch so ungeheuer spannend ist! Auch nicht, dass es so eine innovative Idee enthält und, dass es uns eine so realistische Zukunftsversion präsentiert.Die Idee, dass nur noch junge und alt [...]

    SummaryStarters by Lissa Price is an excitingly addictive story! After the Spore War that wiped out everyone not vaccinated (everyone ages 20-60), Callie Woodland, a sixteen-year-old unclaimed orphan, is living in an abandoned office building with her younger brother, Tyler. Life is terrible--running from renegades who would kill her just for a cookie, living in a cold, abandoned office building with no clean water, heat, or food, and hiding from marshals that want to institutionalize them and t [...]

    This book is amazing! I read it in one sitting through the noise of screaming children playing, so you know it had to be good to keep me from being distracted and into the story! ^_^I really loved every character in the book. I loved the Enders that Callie "befriends" as "Helena". I loved Blake. (view spoiler)[ omg, at the end! I was like NOOOOOOOOO no no no! and then I was like "Awe yes yes yes!"(hide spoiler)] Blake is a 'real teen' that Callie befriends while she is still in her rental period [...]
