Check out this amazing hook!

“It’s been sixty-four years since the president and the Consortium identified love as a disease, and forty-three since the scienctists perfected a cure. Everyone else in the family have had the procedure already. My older sister, Rachel, has been disease free for nine years. She’s been safe from love for so long, she says she can’t even remember the symptoms. I’m scheduled to have my procedure in exactly ninety-five days, on September 3. My birthday.

I like the released cover better. It’s much more intriguing!

They say that the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them.
Until now.
Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.

At 25 years-old, Lauren Oliver signed her first book contract for Before I Fall. It soon became a favorite of young adult audiences, bloggers, librarians, and booksellers. Lauren will visit Granville High School and Cover to Cover on February 7th to discuss her second book Delirium, set in a future world where love is considered a disease and one must take the “cure” at 18 years of age. Both frightening and thought-provoking, Delirium is the first in a trilogy by this talented young author.


Amazon listed Delirium as one of its Best Book of February 2011

You can also find the soundtracks that Lauren listed to go with her book.
