Waiting on Wednesday #6: Requiem

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...

Requiem by Lauren Oliver

Release date: March 5th 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

Delirium is one of the best dystopian series I've read so far, and I can't wait for Requiem, the final book in the trilogy! I like the fact that it's from both Lena and Hana's POV, because Hana's POV will give us an insight into how the 'cured' live. It will also provide a great contrast to Lena's life in the Wilds, and after that huge cliffhanger at the end of Pandemonium, I NEED this book soon!
