Your body. Rented out. Used to murder.

Starters, Lissa Price

First, Callie lost her parents.

Then she lost her home.

And, finally, she lost her body.

But she will stop at nothing to get it back . . .

Callie and her little brother are on the run, living as squatters, fighting off unclaimed renegades who would kill for a cookie. But with the Body Bank comes a promise of much-needed cash, and with it, hope. And then despair . . .

The Bank allows teenagers to rent out their bodies to those who want to be young again. But Callie's renter intends to do more than party in her body. She intends to murder . . .

"If you’re a Hunger Games fan, then move Starters straight to the top of your to-read pile – you’ll love it." - Metro

"The concept is compulsively gruesome . . . Price develops her plot and characters with tight, punchy writing and a sure, confident touch. There must be a movie in this . . ." - The Daily Mail

"A bona fide page-turner." -

"Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games will find it here. Dystopian sci-fi at its best." - Los Angeles Times

"This bleak dystopian novel makes a compelling read . . . Grabs the reader's attention from the first page" - Booktrust

"Price is a gifted writer." - Lionel Shriver

"Big dystopian acquisition set in an ageing, post-war world where youth is coveted at a near impossible price. The author's screenwriting day job is evident in the high-concept, high-octane plot. Sequel to follow this autumn." - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

"The ambiguous and tantalizing ending to this original and exciting story signals a sequel." - School Librarian
