Brooke's Daily Advice

Dear Brooke,

I need some advice about a boy I met. He has pretended to be cured this whole time, while I believed he was. He is actually an Invalid from the Wilds. I really like him but don't know what to do. Please help.

Sincerely, Lena Haloway


What I would do is follow your heart. If you like him then don't let anything change that. Although, if don't think it is going to work out then stop it right now and save yourself the heart ache. But as they say "the heart wants what the heart wants."

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

The movie is set in Portland, Maine, in an alternate present. Civilization is concentrated in those which escaped the severe bombings of decades past.

The government teaches that love is a disease, commonly referred to as "Deliria". There is a surgical cure for the Deliria and it is mandatory for citizens 18 years of age and older. Lena, the main character, has looked forward to the procedure for years. Only because she is convinced by the government that Deliria is a horrible disease that must be destroyed.

However, mere months before her scheduled procedure, Lena falls in love with an Invalid, Alex. He was born in the Wilds and has pretended to be cured. He offers Lena the means to escape the procedure that will destroy her ability to love. He wants the two of them to leave the city and go into the Wilds, joining the rebels who oppose the procedure and the government. The big and final question is, "will she go with him or will she stay and get the procedure?"

Lena Falls In Love

Conflict rises as Lena falls in love with a rebellious boy named Alex. The worst part about it is that she doesn't even know he's an invalid who hasn't been cured. Lena, over time, realizes that love isn't a disease but a tenderness meant for her and others to feel.

Sarah Hyland

Sarah Hyland is starring as Lena Haloway a young, rebellious, yet loving young teenage girl, who doesn't know what she wants to do in life. She is challenged by many things as she doesn't know what they mean. Though outside of the movie she is a young but talented teenage girl who has her whole life ahead of her with many hurdles to jump or dodge as she may choose. As she grows older and wiser she wants people to remember that with or without the fame everybody was made different for the same reason, to give the world character. After she is no longer here she always wants people to remember that and only that, not just that she was a very talented and famous actress.

Why get the cure....

Why get the cure....

It's all because two people fell in love....

Why make yourself suffer and lose the chance of a lifetime by not "falling in love" and getting the cure. While you can just forget about what everybody else is doing and follow your heart to find that special one.
