Publisher Comments:

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, Amazon.com, YALSA, and the Chicago Public Library and was selected as one of NPR's Top 100 Best Ever Teen Novels.

Supports the Common Core State Standards

Synopsis:

In the sequel to Awaken, seventeen-year-old Maddie's fight against the digital life has become personal.

Synopsis:

In Cia's dystopian society it's an honor to be chosen for The Testing.  But its not enough to pass the Test. Cia will have to survive it.

Synopsis:

Its graduation day for sixteen-year-old Malencia Vale, and the entire Five Lakes Colony (the former Great Lakes) is celebrating. All Cia can think about—hope for—is whether shell be chosen for The Testing, a United Commonwealth program that selects the best and brightest new graduates to become possible leaders of the slowly revitalizing post-war civilization. When Cia is chosen, her father finally tells her about his own nightmarish half-memories of The Testing. Armed with his dire warnings (”Cia, trust no one”), she bravely heads off to Tosu City, far away from friends and family, perhaps forever. Danger, romance—and sheer terror—await.

Synopsis:

In this provocative cautionary tale for teens, the sequel to Awaken, seventeen-year-old Maddies rebellion against the digital-only life grows dangerous. Maddie is in Los Angeles, trying to stay out of trouble. But one night, a seemingly small act of defiance lands her in the place she fears the most: a detention center. Here, patients are reprogrammed to accept a digital existence. Maddie is now fighting for her mind, her soul, and her very life. Once again, Katie Kacvinsky paints a disturbing picture of our increasingly technology-based society.

About the Author

Lauren Oliver burst onto the scene with her first novel, the New York Times bestseller Before I Fall. This was followed by her stunning Delirium, which ALA Booklist called "another deft blend of realism and fantasy." A graduate of the University of Chicago and the MFA program at New York University, Lauren lives in Brooklyn, New York. Liesl & Po is her first novel for younger readers.

I thought this book was a very interesting book. What if we lived in a world without love? Where we never had to fall in love or feel lovesick? It was a very good book and kept my attention the entire time. Definitely a good book.

Delirium is a book about a 17 year old girl named Lena who is oblivious to what the world is like outside of portland. All her life she has been thinking her mother committed suicide because of the disease, Amor Deliria Nervosa. She also thinks the procedure is good and has been counting down the days till hers. All she thinks is that the rest of the world is destroyed from the disease. But that all slightly shifts when she is being tested for being paired she sees a strange boy smiling at her from above. Slowly she begins to fall for him as introduced himself as Alex and continuously does flirty things. Eventually her best friend hana finds out and is in on the plan. Lena is matched, the summer is almost over and she is miserable. As she is opening up and telling Alex about her mom he realizes that her mother is possibly still alive…

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance or dystopian novels. I LOVE this book because I think it has a really good hidden message and it’s really well written. I also like it because it’s really age appropriate for ages ranging from 11 to 16. Its not super hard to read and it has sequels to continue the story for people who like sequels.

This book opened up the imagination of LOVE being a disease which blew my mind.
It's interesting, imaginative, fun, and has a lead who you can root for.
I really love this book and can't wait to finish the series!
