by Lauren Oliver
This book was set in a dystopian society and was very good. I loved the plot and the characters. Lena lives in a society where love is considered a disease and a cure was developed for those 18 years and older. A 17-year old rule follower, Lena is convinced that love is a disease and can't wait for her procedure up until the day she meets Alex. Alex is supposedly cured but later in the novel it is revealed that he is an Invalid, a person who comes from outside of the city boundaries. Both teens try to be with each other as much as they can, but it can be very difficult given the amount of influence the government has on everyday living. If they were ever caught together, they would most likely be killed or taken away. Throughout the novel, Alex and Lena struggle for their love with one another
I would recommend this to anyone who likes reading about dystopian societies. I would also recommend this to anyone who enjoyed reading Matched by Ally Condie.
