In the town of Candor, Flordia, everything is perfect. Teens respect their elders, do their chores, and enjoy their homework. Adults also quit addictions after moving there for a bit, The reason that this happens is that everyone in this town is controlled by subliminal messages. Only Oscar, the son of the town's founder knows how to get kids out, But Nia moves into town, Oscar is smitten with her. He can't stand to see her change. So, he must help Nia escape Candor and lose her forever or he could choose to keep her close and risk her exposure,
When I heard about Candor, I knew that I had to read it. I started reading it and was instantly hooked. Oscar has an original voice that shined throught the whole book. This book had the classic theme of how rhetoric and mind control can turn bad. The uniqueness was sucked out of everyone, unless Oscar helped them. I think that it was presented in a new way that made it more interesting. Like how art, was found to be worthless. To me, art is the life of our culture and found it really sad to see them without it. The ending also made me want more. I think that it was just, "Wow!" If you are searching for a different book, you should really check Candor out.
