This book was amazing!  I mean, I had high hopes for it like I did for XVI, but this one delivered.  I really really enjoyed it!  A dystopian world that you could actually picture is the first thing that went right in this book....unfortunately, it's not to far off from what we have now. I mean e dont have volunteer "regulators" running around the street beating people and performing sporadic raids on people's homes, but the media does determine what we think about things.  And we don't have the government telling us that Love is a disease and we all need to get "fixed", but the way that Lauren Oliver describes the "symptoms" of love is extremely accurate!  To learn more about this book, check out the review link below and the synopsis!  We have this book at the library so be sure to come in and check it out!

"Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love."-goodreads
