This slender dystopian novel was published as an adult book in the United States, but I’m so hoping it finds its way to older YA audiences. These 150 pages pack a heavy punch when it comes to considering the deeper questions of balancing the needs of society vs. the individual and what it means to be human. This would be a GREAT literature circles or book club choice for 8th grade and older.

Genesis by Bernard Beckett. A stunning debut novel that's as rich in ideas as it is in suspense, destined to become a modern classic of post-apocalyptic literature Anax thinks she knows history. Her grueling all-day Examination has just begun, and if she passes, she'll be admitted into the Academy--the elite governing institution of her utopian society. But Anax is about to discover that for all her learning, the history she's been taught isn't the whole story.

Beyond the Notebook: Let’s Build a World Together by author, Kate Messner "Research is a huge part of the writing process, not only for authors of nonfiction but also for those of us who write fiction. Historical novels, for example, involve extensive study of the time period in which the novel is set so that authors can make sure every detail is accurate to that historical period."
With that in mind, this is a list of authors who offer free 15-20-minute Q and A sessions with classes and book clubs that have finished reading one of their books. As an author, I offer free Skype chats for the following titles:

Reading For Sanity : A Book Review Blog: Delirium - Lauren Oliver
Delirium by Lauren Oliver: A teen book that is destined to be a movie. In the not-so-distant future, a life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. The government can cure you before the "delirium" ruins your life, whether you want them to or not.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Lena Holoway lives in a world where love is a disease... fortunately, scientists have found a cure for this "dreadful" thing. Lena looks forward to turning eighteen and receiving the cure... that is, until she falls in love... 95 days before her 18th birthday. www.goodreads.com
Delirium is the first installment of a trilogy. Book 2, Pandemonium, was released in February 2012. Book 3, Requiem, is expected to be released in 2013.
Adding this to my READING LIST (July, 2012): "Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. A life without love is a life without pain."
