I'm cheating a bit this week and I'm including two books. One is already out, but I haven't purchased it yet, and the other is coming soon!
My 14 year old sister (who usually reads only when she has to for school, and then just skims through the book) FINALLY noticed the YA titles on my shelf. She devoured Delirium, and wants to find out what happens to Alex. I read Delirium a while ago and was really excited about Pandemonium, but with all the new releases and growing tbr piles it got pushed down the "buy" list.

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.
