CANDOR is out!

I have to take a moment here to plug a friend. Pam Bachorz has a fabulous YA novel out and you absolutely must run out and get it!

Imagine a world where parents can have their teenagers brainwashed into being "perfect" children.

In the model community of Candor, Florida, every teen wants to be like Oscar Banks. The son of the town’s founder, Oscar earns straight As, is student-body president, and is in demand for every club and cause.
But Oscar has a secret. He knows that parents bring their teens to Candor to make them respectful, compliant–perfect–through subliminal Messages that carefully correct and control their behavior. And Oscar’s built a business sabotaging his father’s scheme with Messages of his own, getting his clients out before they’re turned. After all, who would ever suspect the perfect Oscar Banks?
Then he meets Nia, the girl he can’t stand to see changed. Saving Nia means losing her forever. Keeping her in Candor, Oscar risks exposure . . . and more. (publisher description)

  1. It does sound good! Like Scott Westerfeld.

    Its funny because I just read Elana Roth's post about this book and I could feel the excitement in it. Its great for me as a querying writer to see such wonderful first time success.

    Sounds like I know what book my daughter will be reading this weekend.

    Wishing Pam all the best.

  2. I had the chance to read early chapters of Candor when Pam and I shared a crit group, and it was excellent. I mean, really good. So if it was that good in it's beginning stages ... well, I can't wait to read the finished product!
