Summary: Candor teens are changed for life.
In Candor, Florida, teens are very different.
They respect their elders, they enjoy homework, and they do their chores.
Only, the teens do this because they are controlled by subliminal messages.
Oscar, the son of the town's founder, has figured out a way to ignore the messages, and get teens out of the town, for a price.
But then Oscar meets Nia and falls for her.
He can't lose her, he can't see her changed.
Oscar has a big choice ahead of him.
Should he help Nia escape Candor and lose her forever or should he keep her close and risk everything he's worked for?
Rating: 4 Stars
Review: When I started Candor, I wasn't sure what to expect. The plot sounded different, the characters unique, I couldn't wait to start reading it. The beginning of Candor was different but I loved it. The characters were all really well developed and they interacted well. Oscar was definitely a new kind of character. He went against all the rules that his father has set for the whole town, it was interesting. I loved Nia the moment she came to town, she was my kind of character. Dark, funny, unique, everything that makes a girl different but special. She was definitely my favorite character. The romance she has with Oscar was very cute, I really like them together. But the ending of Candor was so surprising. Pam Bachorz definitely wrote this book so you wouldn't see it coming. At first I wasn't sure what to think about it, but it started to grow on me and I think it fit this book really well.
