“Candor is the perfect town. Perfectly designed and perfectly maintained. And as long as everyone listens to their music it will stay that way. This is a powerful and engrossing tale of one man's obsession with perfection and his son's attempt to redefine it.”
— Kat Goddard, The Bookloft, Great Barrington, MA

Description


In the model community of Candor, Florida, every teen wants to be like Oscar Banks. The son of the town's founder, Oscar earns straight As and is student-body president.

But Oscar has a secret. He knows that parents bring their teens to Candor to make them respectful, perfect, and compliant through subliminal messages that carefully correct and control their behavior. And Oscar's built a business sabotaging his father's scheme with messages of his own.

After all, who would ever suspect the perfect Oscar Banks? Then he meets Nia, the girl he can't stand to see changed. Saving Nia means losing her forever. Keeping her in Candor, Oscar risks exposure... and more.

About the Author


Pam Bachorz came up with the idea of writing "Candor" while living in Celebration, Florida, the perfect new town built by the Walt Disney Company. Something about its perfection made her uneasy and prompted her thought, "What if...?" which led to her subversive teen take on the traditional sci-fi trope. You can visit her online at www.pambachorz.com. Visit the community of Candor, Florida online at www.candorfl.com.
