Delirium
By: Lauren Oliver
Publisher: Harper Collins
Series: Delirium #1
Release Date: August 2, 2011

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.

Lena looks forward to receiving the government-mandated cure that prevents the delirium of love and leads to a safe, predictable, and happy life, until ninety-five days before her eighteenth birthday and her treatment, when she falls in love

My Teaser:

 
This is the first time I’ve heard anyone in an official capacity acknowledge the existence of the people in the Wilds, and I suck in a sharp breath. I know it must be painful for Alex to stand there, talking dismissively about a friend who has been caught for being a sympathizer. The punishment must have been swift and severe, especially since he was on the government payroll. Most likely he was hanged or shot or electrocuted  or thrown into one of the cells to rot-if the courts were merciful and decided against a verdict of death by torture. If he even had a trial.
