Description

Ninety-five days, and then Ill be safe.

I wonder whether the procedure will hurt.

I want to get it over with.

Its hard to be patient.

Its hard not to be afraid while Im still uncured, though so far the deliria hasnt touched me yet.

Still, I worry.

They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness.

The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you dont.

Lauren Oliver astonished readers with her stunning debut, Before I Fall. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it raw, emotional, and, at times, beautiful. An end as brave as it is heartbreaking. Her much-awaited second novel fulfills her promise as an exceptionally talented and versatile writer.
