Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Delirium by Lauren Oliver, released Feb. 1, 2011
Young Adult, dystopian
Read, January 2012
This book had a lot of ideas for me to ponder. There were some lines in it that really struck a cord with me. Is love good or bad? Are we better for having it in our lives? Several different relationships were used to explore the idea of love. I especially enjoyed the chapter headings which gave insight into the fundamental ideas that the characters have.
Warnings: Minimal foul language, teens lying and sneaking around to get what they want.
I would cautiously let my 13 year old read this. I would definitely have a discussion with her about not breaking so many rules to get what she wants.
