From the Publisher
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.
About the Author
Lauren Oliver attended the University of Chicago where she majored in philosophy and literature. Afterward she attended the MFA program at NYU and worked briefly as an editorial assistant and an assistant editor at a major publishing house in New York. Her first novel, Before I Fall, received nominations for the Louisiana Young Readers' Choice and the SCASL Book awards. Along with her second novel Delirium, Before I Fall has been published in a number of foreign countries including Brazil, Great Britain, Portugal, Germany, and China. Pandemonium is scheduled for release in the spring of 2012.
"In [Oliver''s] dystopian America, love has been outlawed as the life-threatening source of all discord.Lena''s gradual awakening is set against a convincing backdrop of totalitarian horror.The abrupt ending leaves enough unanswered questions to set breathless readers up for volume two of this trilogy."
