Callie and her little brother Tyler along with a friend Michael, are left in this world to fend for themselves, due to a war. Their parents were killed by the spores that were released during the war. The only people left in this world are the Starters or rather younger generation in their teens and Enders the older generation or grandparents, basically those people who were vacinated against the spores. Some starters are lucky enough to have grandparents alive and well. Callie, Tyler and Michael are not so lucky as well as other children living on the street some are friendlies and some are renegades. Living in abandoned homes or buildings with no money or food is a tough life until a job opportunity comes up for Callie which is a quite a bit more than she bargained for.[return][return]Callie takes a trip to Prime Destinations where she will allow her body to be rented by a ender, where they place a chip in the donors brain and the renters brain and allow the renter to utilize the donor body for a short period of time to do the things that they used to like to do before they were to old to do them. Everyone thinks that this is just for short period but someone else has something else in mind permanacy. [return][return]Callie and her renter get a connection that no other has they can communicate and they fight for what is right. Most Enders want to just rent however some want to become owners. [return][return]This was a truly interesting and pull you in kind of story. I was always wanting to know what was going to happen next. Very well written and I am really looking forward to another book by this auther especially continuing this story. Very fun read and very imaginative.
