Description
Teens respect their elders, do their chores, and enjoy homework . . . because they re controlled by subliminal messages. Oscar Banks, the son of the town's founder, is the model of perfection: class president, top student, shining example. But it's only a disguise. Unlike all the other Candor teens, he knows about the Messages, and he fights them with his own counterprogramming. Only Oscar knows how to get kids out of Candor for a price. When Nia moves into town, Oscar is smitten by her tart attitude and ability to see through his perfect-boy front. He can t stand to see her changed by the Messages. Now he must decide to help Nia escape Candor and lose her forever, or keep her close and risk exposure.
