Enjoy this sneak peek at STARTERS by Lissa Price - on sale March 13th wherever books are sold!

In the future, teens rent their bodies to seniors who want to be young again. One girl discovers her renter plans to do more than party--her body will commit murder, if her mind can't stop it. Sixteen-year-old Callie lost her parents when the genocide spore wiped out everyone except those who were vaccinated first--the very young and very old. With no grandparents to claim Callie and her little brother, they go on the run, living as squatters, and fighting off unclaimed renegades who would kill for a cookie. Hope comes via Prime Destinations, run by a mysterious figure known only as The Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to seniors, known as enders, who get to be young again. Callie's neurochip malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her rich renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, even dating Blake, the grandson of a senator. It's a fairy-tale new life . . . until she uncovers the Body Bank's horrible plan. . . .

CHAPTER ONE
Enders gave me the creeps.
 
The doorman flashed a practicedsmile as he let me into the body bank. He wasn’t that old,maybe 110, but he still made me shudder. Like most Enders,he sported silver hair, some phony badge of honor of his age.Inside, the ultramodern space with its high ceilings dwarfedme. I walked through the lobby as if gliding through a dream,my feet barely touching the marble floor.He directed me to the receptionist, who had white hairand matte red lipstick that transferred to her front teethwhen she smiled. They had to be nice to me there, in the bodybank. But if they saw me on the street, I’d be invisible. Forgetthat I had been top of my class—back when there was school.I was sixteen. A baby to them.The receptionist’s heels clicked and echoed in this starkspace as she took me to a small waiting room, empty exceptfor silver brocade chairs in the corners. They looked like an-tiques, but the chemical scent in the air belonged to new paint
