Just like most Starters who lost their parents. The other option is an institute for orphans, but the street is the better option as the Starters in those institutes have to work under harsh conditions and aren't treated nicely. As Callie's brother is getting sicker and sicker, the trio needs money and Callie decides to take the third option: The Body Bank. Starters can sell their bodies for Enders to rent and take control over for a certain amount of time so that they can feel young again. The Starters sleep during that time, however Callie wakes up and finds herself in a tricky situation. The Ender who rented her seemed to have rented her for a specific purpose that isn't quite legal.
The story line is interesting and brings up some thoughs about technology. Such a thing like controlling someone's body through a chip is fascinating and scaring at the same time. The book isn't exactly very thrilling and there is nothing special about how it is written, but it is more the story line that is catching. You'll want to know what happened and what will happen, so I'd say that it is worth a read. Of cause there is some love involved, that develops further in the second book ("Enders"), which you will want to read after having finished the first part. If you need some summer dystopia this is a nice novel that I would recommend.
Just two young ladies who need to spread their love for books.
