Delirium book cover “It has been sixty-four years since the president and the Consortium identified love as a disease, and forty-three since the scientists perfected a cure.” 

In 95 days seventeen-year-old Lena is scheduled to have the procedure, which ensures she will never become infected with amor deliria nervosa, or love, the deadliest of all diseases. After her procedure she’ll be paired with a boy whom the evaluators have chosen for her.  She won’t have to worry about love affecting her mind so she cannot think clearly, or rationally.  After the procedure she will be safe and free from any pain that love might have brought her.  However, one day when Lena and her best friend Hana are up for their evaluations, Lena sees a boy.  Their eyes meet for a moment and then everything changes.  A whole other version of the world she lives in is revealed to her because of this boy and her best friend Hana. Lena finds herself making choices that may seem irrational and she’s definitely not thinking clearly.  Where do Lena’s choices lead her? Delirium by Lauren Oliver will infect you once you start reading it and you will find it very hard to put down.  Your stomach will flutter with anticipation of what’s coming next and you might even find yourself falling in love with it.  It’s  quite contagious.
