Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Lena lives in a world where love is seen as forbidden and dirty. Citizens are given a cure at the age of 18, a cure for the disease known as amor deliria nervosa. This disease not only applies to relationships between couples but between family, pets, everything. You can never get too close in her world. The Cure is supposed to create stability, uniformity, happiness, perfection. Lena dreams of this cure, along with her best friend Hana. But the summer before her scheduled cure, the unthinkable happens. She falls in love.
This book was well written, and with a moving and sometimes suspenseful plot. Lena's world was fascinating and made you think. I'd read Before I Fall, which was also by Lauren Oliver, and I think they were both great. This is a great book for those who like a bit of romance and books set in a dystopian era.
