What if love was considered a disease?

On her eighteenth birthday, just ninety-five days away, Lena Haloway will get the operation that will cure her of the most deadly of all diseases, also known as love. But Lena is just beginning to realize that the operation strips away all other emotion in people as well, when she meets Alex and commits an unforgivable crime: she falls in love with him.

It includes:

• References to sex
• Kissing
• Making out with partial nudity
• Profanity (two F-words; many uses of sh*t)
• Violence (clubbing and shooting people, as well as animals)
• References to a suicide
• Teens drinking and smoking at a party

Delirium is the first book in a beautifully written young adult dystopian trilogy that takes a look at a disturbing future. It does contain profanity, sexuality, and violence, but nothing is too intense, and should be appropriate for ages fourteen and up.
