Goodreads description--Gemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. 'A sickly child', her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father's connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she's always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father's name seems inextricably linked to it.
Amidst the frenzy outside the institute's walls, Lyra - or number 24 as she is known as at Haven - and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven's purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever...
Truth be told, I'm a little worried about this book. I loved Lauren Oliver's Delirium. And I really enjoyed the rest of the series plus Before I Fall, but Panic left me disappointed and Vanishing Girls ended up being a DNF for me. So that being said, I feel like this could go either way. I could love it or...well...not so much. What are you waiting on this week? Let me know!
