Quinlan McKee has spent her life acting as other people. She was a closer - a person hired to play the roles of the recently deceased in order to give their families closure. Through this process, Quinn learned to read people and situations, even losing a bit of herself to do so. But she couldn’t have guessed how her last case would bring down her entire world.

The only person Quinn trusts is Deacon, her best friend and the love of her life. Except Deacon’s been keeping secrets of his own, so Quinn must set out alone to find Arthur Pritchard, the doctor who’s been trying to control her life. The journey brings Quinn to Arthur’s daughter, Virginia, who tells Quinn the truth about Pritchard’s motives. The former closer will start to see that she is the first step in fighting an epidemic.

But Quinlan doesn’t want to be a cure. And with all the lies surrounding her, she realizes she has no one left to rely on but herself - even if she doesn’t know who that is anymore.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A visceral exploration of the eternal and misguided search for pain-free happiness in an almost-now Brave New World.”

    Kirkus Reviews, praise for The Remedy.

  • “In a dystopian society, closers are hired by grieving families to impersonate a deceased child and give the family a chance at closure. Quinlan McKee is the best closer there is, but then she discovers that everything she has ever believed is a lie. Not sure whom she can trust, Quinn flees her controlling employers and sets out to discover who she really is, uncovering far more than she could imagine. Quinn is a sympathetic character, and readers will want her and fellow closer-on-the-run Deacon to succeed in their mission and their relationship. Young’s latest book perfectly illustrates how good intentions can lead to horrible results. An effort to save people from pain and grief actually causes much more damage than simply letting people feel hurt.”

    VOYA (starred review)

  • “This poignant and well-written novel does an exceptional job of providing fans of The Program with a vivid picture of how the suicide epidemic began.”

    School Library Journal
