Requiem by Lauren Oliver (Delirium Trilogy)

In a world where love is cured by surgery, two former best friends find themselves on opposite sides of a brewing class war.

I really don’t even know what to say about Requiem. I thought Delirium was a better-than-average entry into the Hunger Games dystopian genre. And I loved Lauren Oliver’s standalone Before I Fall. But this trilogy fizzled out for me. I’m tired of love triangles, team this and team that, and free zones, and teenage girls involved in guerrilla tactics. Nothing about this conclusion felt fresh to me. I wonder how I’d feel re-reading the Uglies trilogy today?
