So picture this: a world where one girl has the incredible, mind-blowing ability to slip into the skin of multiple identities without losing sight of who she truly is. Yeah, sounds pretty wild, right? Well, buckle up, because that's exactly what you're in for in Suzanne Young's electrifying companion to The Program and the New York Times bestseller, The Treatment.
In this gripping audiobook, set in a time before The Program, we meet Quinlan McKee, a young prodigy known as a "closer." From the tender age of seven, Quinn has been the rock that grieving families cling to for solace. With her unique gift, she can seamlessly become anyone, stepping into the role of a deceased loved one between the ages of fifteen and twenty. Now, she's not an exact replica, mind you, but she meticulously takes on their appearance by donning their clothes and altering her hair. Through pictures and videos, Quinn studies every intricate detail of their lives until she can flawlessly act, smell, and feel like them. It's truly mind-boggling, if you ask me.
But here's the catch: in order to succeed at her job, Quinn can't afford to form attachments. That would just mess everything up, right? So, at the ripe age of seventeen, she has mastered the art of reinvention, blurring the lines between her own past and the memories of the people she imitates. And let me tell you, it's not always a walk in the park.
However, things take a wild turn when Quinn is handed her most challenging assignment to date: playing the role of Catalina Barnes. This time, Quinn finds herself forming an unexpected bond with Catalina's boyfriend. Oh boy, hold on tight, because that's just the tip of the iceberg. As the story unfolds, Quinn uncovers a truth about Catalina's demise that could unleash a catastrophic epidemic upon the world. Yeah, no pressure or anything.
