My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Synopsis: Lauren Oliver's riveting, original digital story set in the world of her New York Times bestseller Delirium.
The summer before they're supposed to be cured of the ability to love, best friends Lena and Hana begin to drift apart. While Lena shies away from underground music and parties with boys, Hana jumps at her last chance to experience the forbidden. For her, the summer is full of wild music, dancing - and even her first kiss.

But on the surface, Hana must be a model of perfect behavior. She meets her approved match, Fred Hargrove, and glimpses the safe, comfortable life she'll have with him once they marry. As the date for her cure draws even closer, Hana desperately misses Lena, wonders hows it feels to truly be in love, and is simultaneously terrified of rebelling and of falling into line.

In this digital story that will appeal to fan of Delirium and welcome new admirers to its world, readers will come to understand scenes from Delirium through Hana's perspective. Hana is a touching and revealing look at a life-changing and tumultuous summer.

           So I had just finished Pandemonium and I was (am) still reeling about its ending. My best friend had bought and read Hana (but she still haven't read Pandemonium yet. She doesn't do well with cliffhangers and the waiting it requires) and so she let me borrow her Nook. I needed some more of the Delirium world and HO-LY crap. Was Hana saying what I think she was saying? No, I mean seriously? What the hell?! I'm going to have to make time and reread Delirium all over again and pick up on some clues I might have missed.

Hana is a very short novella and it was only enough to satisfy me to some degree. Getting to know Hana was very fun, refreshing and saddening all at the same time. There is a lot more to her than meets the eye and I'm really looking forward to learning more about what happens to her in Requiem.
