After falling in love, Lena and Alex flee their oppressive society where love is outlawed and everyone must receive “the cure”–an operation that makes them immune to the delirium of love–but Lena alone manages to find her way to a community of resistance fighters, and although she is bereft without the boy she loves, her struggles seem to be leading her toward a new love.

This is one of my highly anticipated sequels! If there was a book launch party being held at my local Chapters, I’d definitely be there. I can’t wait for this one.
