In a dystopian world where a cruel totalitarian government has declared love a crime and hindrance to society's good, people have a medical procedure at age 18 to remove the possibility of strong emotions. Harsh rules are enforced involving separation of the sexes, poetry is outlawed, and arranged marriage is a given. Soon to be 18, Lena is both excited and nervous about the surgery. But when she meets Alex and falls in love, all of her assumptions and beliefs are challenged. This is the first book in the Delirium trilogy. Lauren Oliver is also the author of the superb young adult novel BEFORE I FALL.
