are you infected?



Are you love sick? In a not-too-distant future, the US has managed to cure that problem. Amor deliria nervosa, LOVE, has been eliminated as a disease. As teens turn 18 a simple medical procedure (or so they are told) eliminates this illness. Then, teens are matched, wed, and produce offspring. Easy-peasy, right? That's what Lena thinks. She and her friends actually look forward to having the scars of the procedure displayed on their necks. After that, they will be happy and free from worry. For Lena this surgery cannot come too soon. Her mother had the surgery three times, and it did not work. Her life ended with suicide leaving Lena marked as the daughter of someone who violated the law of the government. And then Lena meets Alex, someone who comes from beyond the boundaries of her neighborhood, someone from the "other" side. She falls in love, setting off a chain reaction of events that will leave readers dizzy and demanding the next in this proposed trilogy. <112>
