Candor

by Pam Bachorz
£6.99   paperback  Egmont Childrens Books (2010)

Candor by Pam Bachorz My name is Oscar and I am the perfect teenager. My girlfriend is the hottest girl in school. I get straight As. I am class president.
 
But there is a terrible reason I am so perfect: the Messages.
 
Oscar Banks lives in the pristine town of Candor. Son of the mayor, he is good-looking, smart and popular. And he knows something he's not supposed to he knows about the brainwashing Messages embedded in the music that plays all over the town.
 
But Oscar has found a way to burn counter-Messages that keep him real. Up to now, it's all worked perfectly. There's just one problem: Nia Silva, the newest Candor arrival. What will Oscar risk to keep the Nia he loves rather than watch her become a Candor automaton?
 
Deeply chilling, Candor is a psychological thriller that will haunt readers with its vision of a world controlled by something worse than Big Brother.
