What to expect

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 . . .
