The riveting conclusion to the sci-fi thriller STARTERS!
Someone is after Starters like Callie and Michael—teens with chips in their brains. They want to experiment on anyone left over from Prime Destinations—Starters who can be controlled and manipulated. With the body bank destroyed, Callie no longer has to rent herself out to creepy Enders. But Enders can still get inside her mind and make her do things she doesn't want to do. Like hurt someone she loves. Having the chip removed could save her life—but it could also silence the voice in her head that might belong to her father. Callie has flashes of her ex-renter Helena's memories, too . . . and the Old Man is back, filling her with fear. Who is real and who is masquerading in a teen body?

No one is ever who they appear to be, not even the Old Man. Determined to find out who he really is and grasping at the hope of a normal life for herself and her younger brother, Callie is ready to fight for the truth. Even if it kills her.

Adrenaline-fueled . . .  Fans of Starters will gobble this up.”—Booklist
 
“Delightfully disturbing.”—Kirkus Reviews

From School Library Journal :

Gr 7 Up—Callie successfully brought down Prime Destinations, but that wasn't the end. While she and her family are at the mall, another Starter with a chip in her head has her body hijacked and is turned into a living bomb-all while the Old Man addresses Callie directly through her mind. The protagonist is determined to take him down once and for all and to regain control of her mind and body for good. Price's writing is functional at best and clichéd at worst, too frequently leaning on crutches (like emotion flashing in a character's eyes), but the point here is the story, not its telling. While the first half of Enders drags, especially after the pervasive tension in Starters (Delacorte, 2012), things pick up once Callie is kidnapped by Hyden, the Old Man's son, who opposes his father's work. Her attraction to Hyden feels forced and tacked-on. In the end, all questions are answered and all conflicts resolved (some rather quickly and a little too perfectly), and the book's hopeful ending points toward society's eventual recovery from the effects of the Spore Wars and the generational conflict it caused. Recommended strictly for hard-core fans of the first book who can overlook this sequel's flaws.—Gretchen Kolderup, New York Public Library
