Lauren Oliver's powerful New York Times bestselling novel Delirium --the first in a dystopian trilogy--presents a world as terrifying as George Orwell's 1984 and a romance as true as Romeo & Juliet .

In an alternate United States, love has been declared a dangerous disease, and the government forces everyone who reaches eighteen to have a procedure called the Cure. Living with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in Portland, Maine, Lena Haloway is very much looking forward to being cured and living a safe, predictable life. She watched love destroy her mother and isn't about to make the same mistakes.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena meets enigmatic Alex, a boy from the Wilds who lives under the government's radar. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?

Delirium received starred reviews from Kirkus and School Library Journal , and was named a Best Book of the Year by USA Today , Kirkus ,, YALSA, and the Chicago Public Library and was selected as one of NPR's Top 100 Best Ever Teen Novels.

I could NOT put this book down. I knew, of course, that Lena would fall in love, but the way it happened and the struggle that took place within herself was incredibly well written. The author's description of what it's like to fall in love was absolutely perfect. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good dystopian romance, with a hint of rebellion and a perfectly paced tale of finding oneself. Looking forward to reading Pandemonium.
