A.K.A.: Those not vaccinated against emotion, à la The Giver
AS SEEN IN: Delirium (2011), followed by sequels Pandemonium and Requiem
BY: Lauren Oliver
MOVIE STATUS: Optioned and in development
SUPERNATURAL SPECIFICATIONS: In Oliver’s dystopian future (not so much a supernatural one as a science-gone-wrong scenario), love is a disease called amor deliria nervosa—an affliction for which science has found a cure. But teen protagonist, Lena—yes, she has the same name as the heroine in Beautiful Creatures—finds a reason to stop her treatment. Those who are untreated, who live outside the bounds of civilized society, are known as Invalids.
