In the society Lena Haloway lives in Love is a disease. A disease the government has a cure for, and everyone has to get the cure when they turn 18. Lena is counting the days. In her mind Love causes everything bad that has happened to her. Then 95 days before she is to be cured, she falls in love.
This is the story of how Lena met Alex and fell in love and discovered she doesn’t want to be cured, she makes plans to escape, she has to fight against her family. She also discovers she has been lied to.
This book seemed to be to have the same general plotline as “Pretties”, a world where everyone upon reaching a certain age has to conform to everyone else. I liked the Pretties series better, but this is also an enjoyable read. This book is written from Lena’s perspective, as she falls in love, discovers the truth. There is a lot of ‘teenage angst’ in this book, but not so much that I got sick of it. The ending of the book sets it up to continue, which I know it does, this is the first in a series.
