This is a great action packed book. It reminded me of the Hunger Games quite a bit...ending with a cliffhanger it left me wanting to read the sequal.

Delirium is about a future society where they belive that love is a disease called "amor deliria nervosa", or just "the deliria". The main character Lena is excited to get her "procedure", where the basically remove part of your brain so that you are unable to love. However, in most cases, you aren't supposed to get your procedure before you're 18 otherwise there could be side effects. In some cases, usually when someone catches the deliria, they break that rule and give them the procedure early. Obviously, there are "resisters", who don't agree that love is a disease. The resisters usually live in the Wilds and are called Invalids. It is a really good book and I would definitely recommend it.
